YOU SHOULD KNOW
MNU History majors benefit from small class sizes and innovative teaching. In your history classes, you won't be just sitting quietly listening to lectures. Through the use of games, simulations, discussions, debates, projects, and technology, students learn and experience history in a wide variety of ways. Students learn how to effectively analyze historical sources and communicate that analysis to a critical audience. As a senior, the capstone experience allows you to develop and complete a year-long research project on the topic of your choice.
Graduates leave MNU's history program with not only knowledge of the past, but also the ability to use that knowledge as a part of God's plan for their life.
