All of our undergraduates produce original research in their senior theses, and each spring many of our seniors present this original research at the Mid-Atlantic Phi Alpha Theta History Conference. Some of our alums have even published their senior theses: most recently Jameson Crockett published "Footnote to History: Poland and Preventative War with Germany, 1933" in Diplomacy and Statecraft 20 (2009): 561-579. Every year our department awards the Zeender Prize for the best senior thesis. For a list of former winners, please go here.
If you are an alum who would like to get back in touch, please email Ramon Sola (email@example.com) with your name, current occupation, email, phone number, and address. If you are willing to be contacted by current students interested in learning more about your profession, please mention this in your email.
