The professors at Drew really helped me to decide what kind of historian I wanted to be and encouraged me to explore parts of history I would never have considered. For example, Dr. Jonathan Rose’s course, The Victorian Mind, did not just focus on prominent philosophers in Victorian England. Dr. Rose incorporated studies of art, theater and fiction to help us understand the political and cultural movements occurring at the time.”
