National History Center Collects Surveys to Study the History Major and Liberal Education





Earlier this year, the National History Center (NHC) created the Teagle Foundation Project, through a grant from the Teagle Foundation, to examine the role of historical study in liberal learning.

The American Association of Colleges & Universities defines liberal education as “a philosophy of education that empowers individuals with broad knowledge and transferable skills, and a strong sense of value, ethics, and civic engagement.” The Teagle Foundation Project will examine how a history major prepares students for diverse career paths and for avocational interests that enhance civic engagement in their communities.
