A Career Path Forged in Ancient History
History alumnus Andrew Smith (BA '90, MA '95) was the first in his family to attend college. Oxford University Press has just published his book, "Roman Palmyra: Identity, Community, and State Formation." His former history professor says Smith is "like a poster child for our M.A. in ancient history. His career path illustrates how our master's program serves as a bridge between the bachelor's degree and a strong doctoral program."
