So how many of my fellow /his/torians are currently studying history at a university?
Post your university
I have 5 credit hours left before my bachelors.
Vivat, Cresceat, Floreat Universitas Tartuensis in Aeternum!
Fucking waist-deep in revisionist SJWs.
"It was only after the invention of patriarchy with the advent of agricultural states that warfare became a thing"
Jesus fuck kill me
Is that your characterization of the UW? You are entitled to your opinion, but here's another one:
For the second year in a row, the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been ranked 25th worldwide and 18th nationally by the Center for World University Rankings.
UW-Madison placed by category: publications, 21st; citations, 22nd; influence, 24th; broad impact, 27th; patents, 27th; alumni employment, 29th; quality of education, 29th; and quality of faculty, 34th.
CWUR publishes the only global university ranking that measures the quality of education and training of students, the prestige of faculty members and the quality of their research without relying on surveys and university data submissions. For the complete list, visit cwur.org.
Very nice medieval courses
Scientia illuminans dignum
Busted arse university but with a top-notch geology department which is what I'm primarily doing.
University of Pittsburgh.
Doing a his and Phil double major.
There's like a 97% chance I'm going to be attending a UW school so I'm not going to shit on them. I know how great Madison is and all that, but we'd be a red state if it weren't for Madison and Milwaukee.
Would you deny that there's a ton of SJW fuckery there? I can only imagine how their history and humanities courses are. But besides that, yeah, great school, I'm happy you got in, good luck with the student loans.
Philosophy & Comp Sci double major
But honestly I rare go to the uni these days.
I tried some history classes, one of them was literally a Marxist Muslim with an revolutionary agenda so that was lovely. I guess it gave me some other perspective?
The other was a hippie from the 60s, which was better in some ways. I mean he still gave his opinion, but at least he wasn't trying to push an agenda as much.
What happened to just teaching history?
At the University of Victoria. The history department here is actually quite good, but I'm considering changing my major. Not really sure what I want to do.
There is no such thing as "neutral" history though.
Everything you read and will get taught has an agenda behind it, and everything you write or talk to others about will also have an agenda behind it.
Studying History at University was a mistake.
Anybody who is interested in it should seriously reconsider, even if you love the field like I do.
