What's Next for Denison History Majors?
Denison's History majors apply their skills and experiences to a wide variety of opportunities in the first year after graduation. Here are just a few examples of what our 2017 graduates are doing now:
Since graduation, I've started on my Masters in Museum Studies at IUPUI in Indianapolis, IN. Part of the reason I picked this program over others was because of how much it fits with the values Denison strives to maintain. On top of taking classes like Preventive Conservation, and Collections Care and Management, I work part-time in the registration department at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, where I work closely with the documentation for the art collection, and the collection itself. Denison prepared me so well for grad school and I can't wait to see where else I'll go.
In summer 2017, I worked as an International Program Leader for Rustic Pathways, an experiential education travel company in Southeast Asia. I lived and worked in Udon Thani, Thailand, partly leading service projects, but primarily focused on developing an organic farm for members of the community. After working in Thailand, I took a brief hiatus back in the United States to earn my Teaching English as Second Language and my Wilderness First Responder certifications, so I can lead more advanced travel trips for Rustic Pathways starting back up in March. I am looking forward to traveling, helping, and teaching others throughout the world in 2018!
I am now an Account Manager with Solution Tree, which is a publishing and education company that ensures learning for all! When I'm not in Bloomington, IN, playing soccer in corporate challenges, I've been traveling for work and pleasure and repping Denison from Salt Lake City to Atlanta to the Canadian Parks in Banff, Canada. I am hoping to attend graduate school part-time in the next year to study International Relations focused on food procurement and security.
