Mr. John Christensen

I received my BS in Philosophy from Utah Valley University in 2011 and my MA in History from the University of Utah in 2015. Also in 2015, I was awarded the prestigious Maybelle Burton Fellowship in the Humanities to pursue a PhD in History at the University of Utah. As of now, I'm a dissertation away from receiving my doctorate (what we call "ABD," or "All But Dissertation," in academia). My dissertation is on the twentieth-century US history of medicine. I'm married with three kids. When I'm not reading, writing, or spending time with my family, I like to explore my world. I taught Philosophy and History at UVU for ten years before making the move to UCAS in 2019.
