Our Students

This page highlights the past and present accomplishments and activities of our history students.

KWU Department of History graduates work as lawyers, museum professionals, librarians, office managers, and in sales. They are regularly accepted into graduate school. Many work as teachers.

While at KWU, many history majors have served in Student Government positions, particularly as Student Government President, and have been accepted into interesting and important internships at places like Smoky Hill Museum, Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum, and the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America National Organization in Washington, D.C. and the office of Senator Jerry Moran, also in Washington, D.C.. While here, many of our majors have written research papers that have gone on to win the prestigious "Best of KWU" recognition.
