The History program at Bellarmine University prepares students for post-graduate study in graduate and law school. Students desiring to teach social science at the high school level complete a major in history and obtain certification through our School of Education.
Graduates with a history major find work within museums, public document archival systems, foundations and organizational archives, and other fields in which primary documents must be maintained and studied. Some of our graduates pursue careers in government service or in politics at the local, state, or federal level. Others embark upon careers in business or in non-profit organizations.
History majors work closely with the faculty to learn the methods of historical research and use of primary documents. Historical research, which requires one-on-one mentoring, is a capstone experience in the major. There are also extracurricular activities in the department.
The Bellarmine Historical Society provides opportunities for students to invite speakers, view films, and go on field trips to sites of historical interest. Each year students may participate in the Model Arab League, which travels to regional competitions. Students who excel in the discipline will be invited to be inducted into Phi Alpha Theta, a national honor society with 860 local chapters.
The Career Development Center at Bellarmine University serves all current students and alumni with a variety of career exploration and preparation services, such as; job search strategy, self and career assessment, résumé review, mock interviews, employer on-campus recruiting events and classroom presentations. We want Bellarmine students to be successful both academically and professionally.
