Authentic Client: The Department of History and Geography at Columbus State University

My authentic client will be the Department of History and Geography at Columbus State University. I have chosen this client for two reasons. First, I have a vested interest in helping the department in general, as I am a history major, graduating in the fall, and planning on applying to the new Masters of Arts in History program. Second, the Department is small, is located on the River Park campus, and is losing money because of budget cuts. Basically, they need help!

History departments in universities around the country are experiencing a decline in students enrolled. Graduate programs, in particular, are suffering. According to an essay posted on the American Historical Association website, the number of tenure-track positions in history is declining, even as the number of PhDs conferred is rising. The article makes the case that many historians should recognize that there are other jobs available to PhD candidates, other than university teaching positions.

After doing a little research, I have noticed that many university departments use Facebook and Twitter. The History Department at CSU uses both. According to an article in US News and World Report, many graduate school applicants are using social media sites to gain “unfiltered insights on graduate school life” rather than going through the admissions office to gain this information. This analysis coincides with Osbern’s observation that a conversation is going on about an organization, whether or not they are aware of it!
