Corinne Cox '14, a History major and recipient of the William T. Utter Memorial Prize for best Senior History Thesis, explains why Denison's History Department is the place to be.

“A Denison History major combines the key elements of an outstanding liberal arts education: excellent training in critical thinking, effective argumentation, thoughtful empathy, and strong written and oral communication skills.

Students choose the Denison History Department in particular because of the opportunities they have to work closely with our outstanding faculty, to develop close friendships with other History majors, and to participate in activities ranging from lunches with visiting speakers to discussions on career possibilities to year-long independent senior research projects.

Some of our majors come to us with a well-established love of history; others realize their passion for history the first time they take a course with us. In either case, throughout their four years at Denison, our majors develop analytical, organizational, and communication skills that prepare them for success in a wide variety of post-Denison careers and life experiences.”

Don’t take our word for it. Corinne Cox ’14 says it better!
