Churchill credits the American Studies Program with giving him a broader view of the world and his surroundings.
“The American Studies professors helped me come up with my own conclusions through discussion, debate, and a great set of core classes. My very train of thought constantly evolved in its own unique way, inspiring me to make a difference in my postgraduate life. No program at Keene State would be better for students who really want to make a difference following their undergraduate career.”
He chose American Studies as a major because he liked the variety of careers it would prepare him to enter, and he chose to follow his passion. “My career as a sports journalist arose from the great deal of writing experience I gained through the American Studies BA. It takes me all over the country and it’s wonderful to do something I love as a career.”
