UW-Green Bay students can earn credit in collaborative class with the Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers are gearing up to celebrate “One Hundred Seasons” of history in 2019 and UW-Green Bay students have an exciting opportunity to participate and earn academic credit. In the fall 2018 semester, three classes (Hum Stud 200/300 and History 290) will team up under the leadership of Brent Hensel, the curator for the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, to study the first 50 years of Packers history (1919 – 1969).  In the semester’s first half, students will learn about the early history of football and Packers history in a lecture space with Hensel and receive a special tour of the Hall of Fame. For the remainder of the semester, students will research projects of their design on the Packers and their connection to the Green Bay community, which they will present to a group at Lambeau Field at the end of the semester.

These are gateway classes for the Digital and Public Humanities and the History majors. Students interested in either major are strongly encouraged to enroll in Hum Stud 200 or History 290.  Please contact the designated professor of the course of interest if you have any questions.
