HIS 341 students (Fall 2015) processing materials from the Center for Nursing History Collection with archivist, Jessica Garner

At Misericordia University, we are working with our students to provide quality professional development alongside rigorous academic training in history and the humanities.   Students in the humanities have the opportunity to work on a variety of community projects, service-learning courses, practicum experiences, and paid & unpaid internships throughout the region.  The projects featured here are part of the Digital Humanities & Pedagogy Initiative at Misericordia University.
