Here is an update from William S. Cossen, a 2008 graduate who double-majored in History and Political Science:
I received my M.A. with honors in history at Penn State in 2012, and I’m currently a Ph.D. candidate there, writing a dissertation titled “The Protestant Image in the Catholic Mind: Interreligious Encounters in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era.” I have had two articles published in the last year inAmerican Catholic Studies and The South Carolina Historical Magazine, and I have another article forthcoming in The Catholic Historical Review. I also appeared on Jeopardy! in September and became a three-day champion.
