Thank you Professor Gutzman. The main reason for me wanting to pursue a degree in history would be for my own benefit. I have seen that, with a few exceptions such as the professors on here, there are few historians that seem to understand how important liberty really is and its place in history. I would like to contribute to the history field, even though I am going into nurse practitioning. I feel though that any contribution I could make would be worthless and hold no weight if there was no degree in history. Thank you again for replying.
