Thiel College


Studying history prepares you for a wealth of careers and post-graduate study including museum curating, information management, ministry, education and many more.

Recent Thiel graduates with degrees in history have gone into business, graduate school, law school, and work at the Holocaust Museum and public school teaching. A history major who desires to teach can also obtain elementary or secondary school certification through additional required coursework in the Education department.

Alumni Stories

Adam R. Hodge ’07
Ph.D. candidate of History at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, Neb.

“Through their skillful instruction, the [history faculty] effectively prepared me for a future as a history graduate student. Dr. Koshan, as well as Dr. Bloomfield and Dr. Buck, challenged me in the classroom and provided opportunities to participate in the profession by organizing conferences and presenting papers. I am … deeply indebted to them – and to Thiel College – for guiding me and stimulating my intellectual development.”
