About

The History program from John Carroll University takes special care to prepare our majors for the world after John Carroll.  What can you do with a History Major?  Pretty much anything.  Our graduates have gone on to pursue a dizzying diversity of careers in the law, business, education, government, community service, politics — and a lot more.  The History Department at John Carroll has established a mentoring network with our graduates.  

We put our alumni in the law in contact with students interested in legal careers so they can help mentor them through the law school application process.  Alums in business fields, many of whom have earned MBA degrees, assist students seeking entry into the business world. And alumni who have gone on to graduate school — in all kinds of fields — work with our students to allow them to put their best foot forward.  If you love history but fear that majoring in it will hamper your career prospects, have no fear — our alumni have you covered. 

These courses emphasize active learning, critical thinking, and engagement with primary sources. Our faculty is constantly developing new courses as their scholarship takes new directions.
