ULM partners with LEH for Teaching American History Summer Institute
The University of Louisiana at Monroe Department of History will offer graduate-level history courses to local social studies teachers during ULM's Summer I session this year.
These ULM History Department courses are part of the "Teaching American History Summer Institute" and made possible through funding from a Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities grant obtained by local parish school systems.
Teachers must apply and, if accepted into the program, may take the summer course at no cost. Those accepted and enrolled in a course also receive a stipend.
"The Teaching American History Summer Institute is a great opportunity for a teacher not only to earn graduate credits, but to become reacquainted with the joy of learning history," said ULM History Department Head Ralph W. Brown.
