Missouri S&T’s history and political science department is made up of some of the most prolific and accomplished historians in the country. In fact, John McManus, associate professor of history, was named one of “America’s Top Young Historians” by the History News Network.
His most recent book, The Dead and Those About to Die — D-Day: The Big Red One at Omaha Beach, has been well-received. Kirkus Reviews magazine called it “an exciting account from the personable point of view of the soldier.”
As a history major, you’ll have the opportunity to work with and conduct research along side these respected historians. And your studies with them start right away because most history classes at S&T are taught by Ph.D. instructors, including first-level courses. If you’re interested in military or industrial history, then you’re really in luck, as the department has several faculty members that are recognized experts in these fields.
S&T history graduates become teachers, professors, lawyers, military officers, and museum curators, among other professions.
