East Georgia is a great place to begin your studies in history. Here, you'll find:
- Great faculty, such as Dr. John Derden, who regularly leads groups on area Sherman's March tours.
- The Heritage Center in the East Georgia State College Library, with genealogy and Confederate Registry resources that are treasures for historians.
- Connections to a region rich in Civil War and civil rights historical events.
- Travel-study opportunities through the University System of Georgia that have taken East Georgia students to study centers in France, Span and Costa Rica.
Where Will You Go From Here?
With history as your major, you have a world of options open to you. Most students who study history transfer to complete their four-year degrees and then master’s or professional degrees, and work as teachers, attorneys, public servants, government officials, business and civic leaders, principals, headmasters, ministers, archivists, curators, librarians, and a wide spectrum of other career fields.
EGSC history students have transferred to complete their degrees at:
- Georgia Southwestern State University
- Augusta University
- Georgia College and State University
- Georgia Southern University
- University of Georgia
The study of history introduces students to the realities of the world -- the "Aha!" moments when they see the relevance between history and every other subject. I believe that students should be transformed by the college experience, and that's what happens here.
