David P.  Hopkins, Jr.Henry Professor of History, Department Chair, Associate Professor, History

David Hopkins, a Michigan native, became interested in history through a community college American history course. It was a difficult course, but he found himself fascinated with the material.

While he enjoys online teaching, he prefers the face-to-face setting. Teaching can be a performance and that comes through a lot better in the classroom vs. the online setting.

Before the whole history thing, Hopkins played guitar in a rock band in and around Detroit, Michigan. He is happiest watching Michigan State Spartans football and basketball. He is a HUGE Detroit Lions fan – still hoping for a Super Bowl appearance in his lifetime. He also watches a lot of Red Wings and Tigers games when he can.
