Overview

History classes at Bluffton are frequently revised to reflect new sources and interpretations. As a history major, you will be encouraged to intern with a local or state historical agency or museum. Advanced students may assist professors with research projects and will be encouraged to complete departmental honors research projects. 

While the history major remains excellent training for law school, students aiming for a career in law-related fields can major in any number of areas. Students interested in a career in law are strongly recommended to complete the pre-law minor.

With a history major, your career options are numerous. You will be prepared to enter careers in business, secondary education or voluntary service, or graduate programs in history, law and library science. 

This major can be completed in three years if you are a dedicated and ambitious student.
