Biography

Dr. Matthew Laubacher is an instructor in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Arizona Global Campus. He teaches courses throughout the History program as well as within the Liberal Arts and Social Science majors. He graduated from the University of California, San Diego with bachelor’s in History and Biology, holds a master’s in Education from National University, and recently earned his doctorate in History from Arizona State University. Prior to becoming a full-time faculty member, he worked as a faculty associate at Ashford University, now UAGC, for three years, taught for two years at Arizona State as a graduate teaching associate, and four years as an adjunct faculty member at Rio Salado College, and taught high school both online and on-ground. Dr. Laubacher’s main research interests involve the dynamic relationship between science (especially biology) and culture. He enjoys training students to critically examine historical documents as well as our cultural understanding of history. When teaching, Dr. Laubacher focuses heavily on the development and application of student critical thinking skills throughout the course. The number one tip he gives to online students is to develop active reading skills and to make connections with other aspects of course content while reading. Dr. Laubacher lives in San Diego with his wife, Dr. Jacqueline Ryan-Rojas, who is also a UAGC faculty member, and their three children.

See Dr. Laubacher discuss Ashford's (now UAGC) Bachelor of Arts in HistoryBachelor of Arts in Sociology, and Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Government programs.
