Chester McArthur Destler Scholarship
The Chester M. Destler scholarship was created to honor Department of History professor, Chester M. Destler.
History prepares students for careers in public history, including archival management, museum curatorship, and historic preservation.
More than dates and events, history gives us a broader view of our world. By understanding how people thought and acted across the ages in the different parts of the world, we can better understand the events of today and how we can influence tomorrow.
History majors analyze and interpret information, write and share ideas about why events happened and develop the knowledge and skills that help them to succeed in today’s workplace.
