The Ashbrook Scholar Program

Finding the right college can be overwhelming. You can major in political science or history at almost any school. But which school will give you the best education and the best chance of success after you graduate?

Ashland University is recognized nationally as one of the top schools for political science and history. Furthermore, by coming to Ashland you also have the chance to become an Ashbrook Scholar.

The Ashbrook Scholar Program is an honors program for students seeking a degree in political science, history, pre-law, international relations, or social studies education at Ashland University. As an Ashbrook Scholar, you will take part in a rigorous academic program embedded in the liberal arts tradition that involves the study of the great works of Western Civilization and America. You will also read and discuss the works of our greatest thinkers and the speeches and writings of our noblest statesmen.

However, you won't simply be challenged inside the classroom; you will be challenged outside the classroom as well with exciting internship opportunities and events with prominent world leaders (past speakers include John Boehner, Mitt Romney, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Henry Kissinger, and Benjamin Netanyahu). The Ashbrook Scholar Program is a serious program for serious students like you.

One great way to learn more about the Ashbrook Scholar Program is to participate in our free monthly webinars. Each month, one of our professors hosts a webinar on an important document or speech such as Jefferson's First Inaugural Address, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, or The Federalist Papers. When you participate in these webinars you will get to experience firsthand what classes are like in Ashbrook. To register for a webinar, simply fill out the form above beside the video.

"The professors in the Ashbrook Scholar Program are eager to help guide their students' dialogue with the great thinkers of the past in any way they can, but their assistance is not the focus of the class. Instead, Ashbrooks attempt to understand them as they understood themselves. In a way, Ashbrooks take classes with the great thinkers, not with second-hand accounts from textbooks or professors."
