The History Department thanks you for your concerns and thoughts for our colleague Steve Guerrier and on the death of Jackie Guerrier, his daughter, a double Duke.  We will provide updates as they become available.  Please reach out to us at history@jmu.edu


Why History?

Because it matters.

History majors learn to think deeply. To pause and to analyze. To wonder and to investigate. To explore the relevance of the past and find its resonance in the present. Historians apply our knowledge and skills to real world problems. We examine human experience across time and space. We are engaged researchers, who prize social and digital literacy to promote knowledge of the world around us. We are informed citizens prepared for careers in a wide array of fields.

So many reasons to major in History. Learn more.
