Ship Student Watch

Another student from our applied history graduate program is out benefiting society:
"(Michael) Fauser, a graduate student in Shippensburg’s applied history, spent the recent semester break as part of the prestigious Lipper Internship Program Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust in Lower Manhattan. He was one of 16 interns who learned how to teach 20th Century Jewish history and the Holocaust to young people.

"During his time in New York, he studied the museum’s exhibitions, heard testimony from Holocaust survivors and attended seminars led by the museum’s scholars. Having completed the initial program, he will visit high school classrooms to discuss the museum’s offerings and pave the way for the young learners to visit the museum in New York. Since the program started in 1998, interns have worked with more than 50,000 students from around the Northeast, according to museum information."
