In Part 4 of our Department Series, professors from the Modern Languages Department answer a few questions to help you know what to expect and how to succeed as a Modern Languages major here at Mississippi College. Read here to see what they have to say about their department.
I have found that it becomes easier and easier to forget how thankful we are for the things and people in our daily lives. Of course we're thankful for our friends and family, but we don't always say that actively. The same goes for Mississippi College. I spend the majority of the year here, and I'm definitely caught in the day to day grind of classes, work, and social events. But at the Choctawk, we want to take the time to say thank you to Mississippi College. I think I speak for all of us when I say that MC has changed our lives for the better.
Before coming to college, I assumed that my professors would be too busy to invest in my life, to hear my ideas, or to care about my future. However, this idea changed my Freshman year when my professors gave up their time to help me work through problems or to listen to my ideas for a paper. Now that I'm in my Senior year, it's hard to me to imagine what these past four years would have been like without the support and guidance of my professors.
Preview Days fill our campus with laughter, tours, and fantastic food. Here at the Choctawk, we love Preview Days because we get to meet you guys and hear your stories. For those of you who made it to Preview Day, we hope you had a blast!
Freshman year, I walked into my 8 AM Chemistry class to be greeted by Dr. David Magers, whose wealth of knowledge is quite intimidating. Although Chemistry was one of my least favorite subjects, I grew to love the class. I believe this is due to the caring, patient nature of the professor who passionately loves his job.
Hello to all people potentially interested in history. (Hello to everyone else too, but this is a blog about the History Department.) The History Department, like many other departments at MC, pair their content with critical thinking skills. Students study historical narratives ranging from ancient world history to Mississippi history while focusing on the disciplines of close reading and academic writing.
