Testimonials

Dr. Hagerman has been a tremendous help to my growth as a professional historian. As an undergraduate, my reading, writing, and critical thinking skills benefited greatly under his tutelage. As a graduate student, I sought his advice on navigating through academic requirements, research presentations, and postgraduate career opportunities. I would highly recommend his services, as I have been fortunate to see the successes born of working alongside such a knowledgeable and passionate professor.
— Chris Blaker, BA, MA
Dr. Hagerman helped me discover my own original research question and exposed me to primary sources. The result was a learning environment which prepared me for graduate-level study.
— Salaina Catalano, BA
When I started my academic career, I thought I knew how to write well. But it wasn’t until after working with Chris Hagerman that my writing really took shape. He made me work for it, treating my work professionally and reviewing it honestly. I am far more confident in my writing and research abilities after working with Chris.
— Shelby Fox-Purrier, BA
I was very fortunate to have Dr. Hagerman as my adviser while pursuing my BA. Like many honor roll students, I thought I’d skate through college on my talents. My first classes and meetings with Dr. Hagerman soon disabused me of these notions. Dr. Hagerman’s personal teaching style was exactly what I needed to improve my own shortfalls and reevaluate what it meant to be a historian. Whether it’s teaching you how to navigate byzantine application processes or encouraging you to start taking foreign languages seriously, Dr. Hagerman has all the know-how that a student would need to advance his or her career. I’m confident I would never have gotten into my MA program without Dr. Hagerman’s support, and I could not recommend him more highly.
