Student graduates in History, heals public

HIS/SS MAJOR CHRISTINE GEER GRADUATES WITH A MASTER’S DEGREE IN PUBLIC HEALTH

When students ask what they can do with a history major, we often tell them: whatever you want, because history is a wonderful springboard for many different professions. Take for example Christine Geer, who graduated from Eastern with the History/Social Science and Education degree, and decided to pursue graduate school in the public health field. For the last two years she studied at the Boston University, and as she reported before, her background in history made her better prepared to both understand social issues and their historical context, and to research and write papers. She even co-authored a research paper, which is going to be published in a scholarly journal!

Now Christine has a Master’s degree in Public Health and has just accepted a position as a Clinical Research Coordinator at Boston Children’s Hospital. She will recruit and enroll participants, and will assist in multiple different clinical studies. And that’s how Christine will combine her passion for history, education, and public health with a professional career.
