Immediate and long-term plans:
I am working on my bachelor's in history with anthropology and religious minors. I would like to work with refugees, immigrants, indigenous communities or something else. In an ideal world, I would work for the United Nations and write for National Geographic.
What aspect of your time at PCC has been the most meaningful?
The ability to participate in so many extracurricular activities, especially the Associated Student Government – having a chance to learn about leadership there – and serving as president of the History Club. I got to build my resume while I was in school and got to know so many people and how the whole system works while making connections.
What Will I Learn?
History is the study of the past in order to help us understand the present. Studying history is much more than learning about people, dates and events; you will also learn important skills that are valuable in many careers. These include strong research and writing skills, strong communication skills, and the ability to use digital collections, analyze source material, and present evidence clearly. PCC’s program introduces you to history and includes courses that are common to all four-year institutions in Colorado.
