Marjorie Wechsler

Professor

As a member of the Humanities Division, Marjorie has developed and taught a wide variety of courses in both history and literature, including Human Rights and the Constitution; the United States and the World, the United States Since World War II, The Holocaust in Modern Jewish History, The Civil War Era, and Contemporary American Literature.

She was an undergraduate history major at Barnard College and completed two masters’ degrees (History and Literature) at Harvard University. Her biggest reward in teaching is to cultivate in students an enthusiasm for the intellectual and artistic pursuits that have engaged her over the years.
