    STUDENTS WALK IN FOOTSTEPS OF HISTORY Professor Caleb Finegan’s current research centers on the medieval pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Every other summer, he takes students to Spain for this 500-mile walking pilgrimage.

    Scholar-teacher model and hands-on instruction

    Our faculty members embrace the scholar-teacher model that allows them to bring their real-world work into the classroom. This approach helps students learn how research is actually conducted and how it relates to modern affairs. All faculty members have completed doctoral degrees, and all classes are taught by full-time professors; no teaching assistants teach classes.

    Our faculty includes an editor of the Chinese Historical Review, a winner of the Rome Prize in Modern Italian Studies, a Fulbright Grant recipient, numerous published authors, and an appointee to the Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute Board of Trustees.

    As a History major, you will be assigned to a specific faculty member who is there to guide you through your journey at IUP. Your advisor will help you plan out your academic career and can provide guidance on studying abroad, internships, and career planning.
