“ TROY's history department did an excellent job of preparing me for life after undergrad. Studying history not only gave me an understanding of the historical context for the world we all live in, it also developed several key skills I use every day in law school. It taught me how to critically analyze evidence. It also taught me to write precisely, objectively, and persuasively. These skills helped me to have a very successful first three semesters at Washington and Lee School of Law. I encourage anyone who wishes to go to law school, or anyone who wants to work in a job that values critical thinking and writing ability, to become a history major at TROY.   ”
