Undergraduate Research


pat  Both the theory and the practice of research are vital concerns for History
  majors at Marist. Students hone their expertise through a wide range of
  coursework, including either an upper-level Research Seminar or an internship
  at the nearby Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Museum & Library. A rich
  array of research experiences are available to students beyond the traditional
  classroom as well. Mentored by History Department faculty, History majors have
  regularly presented their work at undergraduate conferences such as the Phi
  Alpha Theta Upper New York Regional Conference, which in 2015 was held at
  the College. Many majors put their skills to work as interns at Marist Archives &
  Special Collections and at the Hudson River Valley Institute, which provides
  opportunities for students to experience "living history" (below, left) and even to
  publish their work. Field trips to historical sites such as the FDR Museum (below,
  right) also provide crucial context for students' research efforts.
