The Colonial History Concentration takes advantage of our special relationship with Historic St. Mary's City, the first capital of Maryland and a colonial archeological site, research facility, and museum.


SMP Spotlight

Matt Anthony, "Pickin' Up the Pieces: Country-rock and the End of the Sixties," 2013.

“My St. Mary's Project offered a way for me to merge my love of popular music with my research interests. Working closely with my mentor, Dr. Chuck Holden, gave me an in-depth insight into the work of an historian. I had the opportunity to pursue research avenues that are not typically part of the undergraduate experience, including archival work at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Library & Archives in Cleveland, Ohio, and conducting oral histories with several performers from the 1960s and 1970s. Even after a year of thorough research and writing, my SMP left me feeling that I have only scratched the surface of a very rich topic which I hope will be the basis of further study as I enter graduate school."
