At Ball State, we believe that decisions individuals, governments, and societies have made in the distant and recent past create opportunities for and affect the actions of today’s Ball State students, Muncie residents, and citizens of the United States and the world.We discuss many of the important questions in the classroom that we confront in our day-to-day lives such as:
History is fun, exciting, and endlessly rich. The diversity of our programs reflects the pleasure of learning as well as the skills of a discipline. You may choose to major in public history and the teaching of history; you will study in U.S., European, or Asian history; you may pick up minors in African, African-American, or ancient studies.Your education will go beyond the classroom. We offer several hands-on and immersive learning opportunities such as the public history internship.Even as an undergraduate, you will have research opportunities, and Ball State's facilities will meet all of your research needs. For example, Bracken Library is home to the Helen B. and Martin D. Schwartz Special Collections and Digital Complex, featuring state-of-the-art technology, broadcasts from around the world, digital assets, and unique collections. Plus, the library has access to about 2.3 million books, periodicals, microforms, audiovisual materials, software, government publication maps, musical scores, archival records, and other information sources. And you can go online anywhere on campus, thanks to our high-speed, wireless network.
