Background:
Prepared at Duke (BA, 1965 history major, literature minor) and Emory (MA 1974, Ph.D. 1978, in history, minors in East Asia and European Socialism and Communism), Dr. Cobb teaches World History, US History since 1877, Warfare and Popular Culture (Film Noir). 

Each year Cobb also teaches for OCU in Singapore, offering a course he designed in 1989 and has presented ever since, "America, Economics, Geopolitics, and the Future."

Cobb has been at OCU in administration or on the faculty since 1981 and was selected by his peers as OCU's "Outstanding Teacher," the second year that award was given

Cobb has two children, Cary (b. 1982) and Allison (b. 1986). He sings in OKC's Canterbury Choral Society. He relaxes  and has fun by glorying in Duke basketball, a frantic racquetball game and learning more history, thinking about it, and communicating it to new generations of students.
