THE STUDY OF HISTORY
Become a History Laker
What human beings can do, might do, or ought to do makes no sense at all unless we know what they have done already. This involves the study of history. History examines the lives of people, the consequences of ideas, and the ending quest of daily bread. It presents human misfortunes and greatness as well as the struggle for survival. Study of the past reveals valuable achievements as well as dreadful mistakes, and in so doing helps us meet the unexpected challenges of our own day.
The Department of History is a unit of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Established in 2011, the Grand Valley Journal of History (HST 410) is a student-run publication that provides undergraduates with an opportunity to share their historical research in a cross-disciplinary, peer-reviewed forum. In this credited course, students work collaboratively to review and publish articles and to promote the Journal. The aim of the Journal is to facilitate the development of an academic community through scholarly interaction while preparing undergraduates for the professional world.
For more information and submission guidelines, see the course catalog or visit the Journal online at http://scholarworks.gvsu.edu/gvjh/.
