Lakeshore college continues climb in ratings, reviews.

The challenge of understanding other peoples, places and times enriches all who are willing to embrace it and provides students with a background suitable for many kinds of history-related careers. Department courses stress the importance of disciplined methods of inquiry and interpretation, as well as empathy and imagination, and are taught by widely published scholars and other seasoned historians. Many students participate in our extensive study abroad programs, and choose to specialize their curriculum in American studies, global and international studies, Medieval and Renaissance studies, gender and women's studies and Native American studies, or to become a Social Studies teacher.
