Johnny Fulfer EOU History Major

“It is difficult to put a price tag on a liberal arts education because it provides you with so much more than the prospect of a decent salary. What I found most appealing about the history classes here at EOU is that they challenge you intellectually and force you to think critically about the past and how it has influenced, and continues to influence, the way we interpret the present. The small class size at EOU provided a space for me to engage with my professors and classmates at a more intimate level and challenge the way I understand the world. The faculty at EOU are extremely talented and capable individuals who helped me gain the essential skills and knowledge that I can take with me into graduate school at the University of South Florida. I plan to continue the research I began here at EOU in the M.A. program in History at USF, which explores how economic science has framed the way we interpret the meaning of civilization and progress in American society, and how this has shaped the nature of modern capitalism.”
