OOS Junior interested in ECU
I am starting to put together my list of schools to apply to/visit. I am a Va resident with a career goal of working in historic preservation/public history/urban/community planning. I have looked at some very small schools, some medium sized ones, some larger ones. I know I want a school that has great school spirit, friendly down-to-earth people and offers me a way to prepare myself for this career path. I will most likely go onto graduate school to get my master's in Historic Preservation or M. Arch with a HP emphasis.
So....in looking at NC schools, I saw that ECU has a BS in both Public History and one in Urban and Community planning. Right up my alley! Yay! Also, it seems like it has great school spirit and a community feeling. I am a pretty strong student with a 4.5 gpa, ranked 6th in my class of 340 at a very competitive, highly ranked public hs. Several leadership positions, sports, etc. I haven't received my May 5th SAT scores yet.
My questions are:
1. Does anyone know anything about the Public History or history programs at ECU?
2. How about the Urban planning program?
3. How hard is it for OOSers to gain admittance to the Honors College and receive merit money as an EC Scholar?
Thank you all so much for reading through this post! Have a great day!
