SMP Spotlight

Megan Anderson, "That Which Remains: The Interplay of Memory and Fiction in Holocaust Remembrance," 2011.

"My St. Mary's Project was truly the culminating experience for my undergraduate years.  The process brought me full circle; I was able to take a piece of literature I had read in my very first semester and keep discussing and applying theory to it in my last.  My SMP proved to me that I could sustain great ideas and discipline myself, even when I was discouraged.  Working so closely with my SMP mentor, Christine Adams, was really valuable, offering a one-on-one environment that I had never had with my regular classes.  I came away from my project knowing more about my topic than I thought I ever would -- and I still love it!"

Alumni Spotlight

Students at Phi Alpha Theta party

"Becoming a history major has helped me to develop skills in writing, research, and critical thinking I never knew I had. I used to get nervous when friends and family would say to me "So you're a history major... what are you going to do with that?" But now I realize that the professors in this department have prepared me for the "real world" without me even knowing. While I signed on simply to study stuff that interested me, I ended up developing a unique skill set and learning how to address problems in an analytical and unbiased way."

-Josh Herber, Class of 2007
