History Major and German Minor

“Choosing to become a history major at Fairfield University has been one of the best decisions of my life. Studying history has exposed me to countless aspects of the human experience and provided me with an excellent foundation for future academic study. The history major has allowed me to enhance my ability to conduct academic research, interpret historical documents, and effectively synthesize information. In combining my history major with a minor in the German language, I have been able to derive a deeper understanding from many of my European history courses. While studying Modern German History with Dr. Gavriel D. Rosenfeld, for example, I have had the opportunity to apply my German language skills in reading primary historical documents in the original German. In pursuing my undergraduate degree in history, I have learned vital skills that will be extremely beneficial to me as I pursue my future studies in graduate school.”
