Texas State University, Office of Distance and Extended Learning offers undergraduate students of history the opportunity to carry out original archival research under the direct mentorship of two faculty members. Texas State University announces the second year of a faculty-led Study-in-America program at the US National Archives & Library of Congress (June 4 - July 6, 2017).
College Park MD is home to the Archives II facility, where the bulk of U.S. civilian records are curated; College Park is also home to the University of Maryland’s flagship campus, ensuring that all the support services (dormitory housing, cafeteria services, medical facilities) are available for a successful university experience, even away from home.
Students currently enrolled at Texas State as well as other students are eligible. Students who seek a course equivalent to the "senior seminar" taught in U.S. universities' history departments are welcome to apply, as are MA students seeking a directed research experience (transfer credit is at the discretion of their home institution).
Associate Professor Dr. Elizabeth Bishop and Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Gökser Gökçay are scheduled to lead the program during summer 2018. With a combined 30 years' experience working with outstanding undergraduates, both is prepared to mentor history majors pursuing their own research regarding U.S. diplomatic relations with the Republic of Turkey, the Arab Republic of Egypt, and Hashemite Iraq during the Cold War.
