    Duration

Overview

History provides an opportunity not only to learn not only about the past, but also to gain important insights into the present. By understanding what has happened before, we can better understand and evaluate current information and events.

As part of an integrated Social Sciences Program, the History major is designed to enhance students’ understanding of the world through the application of social scientific research skills to domestic, regional and global problems, as well as issues of diversity. The major provides practical insights into why and how the world(s) we live in work the way they do.

Further, it can prepare students for careers not only in teaching but also law, politics, journalism, historical preservation, cultural resource management, or for running their own business and anything involving finding and understanding new information (research). The major’s focus on independent learning provides opportunity for students to prepare for a wide variety of leadership positions in community and business.
