GVSU History Alumna Dr. Erika Edwards

Watch her talk given for the GVSU Latin American and Latina/o Studies Program and History Department, October 1, 2020

“The skills I learned as a history major have been incredibly helpful. Being able to do deep research on a topic, analyze and synthesize your findings, come to a conclusion, and then communicate that all effectively is something I have to do on a weekly basis. It was my love for doing historical research that led me on this path, and even though I don't do too much historical research these days, the research and communication skills you learn are very applicable to other fields.”

Alice Kalinowski, History '15
