Special OpportunitiesBeyond the Classroom
The History Department is home to a variety of history-related activities outside of the classroom, including the opportunity to conduct your own study independently and present your findings in a student lecture. Spend a semester in Washington or Chicago taking classes or interning. If you’d rather stay closer to home, you can intern at local businesses or museums like Moorhead’s own Hjemkomst Interpretive Center or even your own hometown county historical society, while earning academic credit and valuable work experience. Maybe you would rather join the department’s honor society or honors program. Regardless of what path you choose, Concordia’s history department will lay strong foundational critical-thinking, communication and organizational skills that will prepare you for the years to come.
As a student in the Concordia history department, you will have the opportunity to travel abroad with expert faculty on one of our award-winning global education programs. Whether you are overseas for a week or a month exploring medieval castles, walking among the ruins of ancient walls or gazing at renowned art of the past, Concordia has an Exploration Seminar or May Seminar that will align perfectly with your interests.
