Our Students Learn from Teacher-Scholars

Our full-time History professors are all published authors actively pursuing research agendas and book projects. This is because excellence in teaching is their priority. In the words of the Assoc. of American Colleges and Universities, "Teacher-scholars are committed to high-quality undergraduate education, pursue an active program of research and scholarship, and are presumed to enliven and enrich their teaching and the student experience by incorporating insights from their own research into their instructional activities, student advising, and related work" (Kuh, et al., "Why Teacher-Scholars Matter," Liberal Education, Fall 2007).

What are recent graduates doing?

Recent Aquinas history graduates have pursued work in graduate schools, the foreign service, public history (museums, state historic parks, archives,etc.), politics, law, business, and teaching at the college, secondary, and elementary levels.
