Prospective Students

Who should apply to the Hagley Program in the History of Capitalism, Technology, and Culture?

prostudentsHagley Scholars come to the University of Delaware with a variety of interests and backgrounds. They share a common desire to engage in a wide-ranging conversation about the history of technology, business, and consumerism, and material culture in everyday life. Some plan to go on to careers in university teaching while others are interested in public history or museum work. Most, but not all, have a B.A. or an M.A. in history when they are admitted to the history department. Special preparation in a technical field is not a requirement for admission.
