“The history program at MSU is analytical and has given me the writing skills and tools I need to be competitive for internships and graduate school. Faculty members have always been supportive and have motivated me to expand my knowledge and experience. This summer I will be interning at the Alice Paul Institute outside of Philadelphia, where I will be working in archival studies along side authors and collaborating with curators across the state.  I am thankful the history program at MSU has prepared me for such opportunities.”
