Prospective Student Information
We are pleased that you are visiting the Program of History web site. We want to point out some benefits to attending the Program of History as you contemplate selecting your post-secondary or transfer education options.
~ Assessment: How does one assess an academic program? One answer to that all important question is by providing graduating seniors an opportunity to evaluate the program by participating in an “exit survey.” Over the past eight semesters/four years, our graduating seniors have rated that the Program of History “exceeded expectations” 92.5 percent!
~ Internships: Internships are an important professional networking component of the Program of History. Our peers have interned at: The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.; Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth, Mass.; the National World War I Museum; Steamboat Arabia; Ft. Leavenworth Museum; Shawnee Indian Mission; the Irish Museum; and the U.S. State Department in Macedonia, to name just a few.
~ Honor Society: Our program has one of the oldest honor societies on campus, Zeta Omicron. Our chapter of Phi Alpha Theta (national history honor society) is over 50 years “young” and nationally recognized.
~ Professional Networking: Very few national undergraduate programs can boast about the number of majors attending and presenting papers at national, regional and local professional conferences. We practice our profession . . . as undergraduates!
~ Study Abroad: We encourage history majors to travel and study abroad. Recently, our peers have traveled to the Netherlands, Greece, Italy, Germany, England, Austria, China, Poland, Tanzania, Scotland and the Czech Republic.
~ Financial Assistance: Tuition and fees at Park University are based on a per credit hour costs. Prospective students or parents are concerned about the cost of educating their children.

Further information regarding financial assistance may be obtained by visiting Park University’s financial aid web site.
