With a history degree from Wayne State, you could teach, work in a museum, go on to study law, or even find success in business. You’ll study past and present civilizations, and aspects of their political, social, and intellectual development. World and American histories will be the main subjects in your history classes at WSC.

About

Every day, history is made. Events are happening, people are reacting, and policies are developing. As the study of what has happened, history can open you up to a deeper understanding of things such as politics, religion, economics, and general culture trends. By taking into account why things are the way they are, you can have a better understanding and appreciation for all aspects of life and human interactions. Because history gives you a broad, solid foundation, your career opportunities are countless. 

The programme

In the Department of History, Politics, and Geography, you’ll benefit from a solid liberal arts education while preparing for a wide variety of careers. Students who pursue degrees in history, political science, or geography go on to careers in fields such as teaching, law, politics, public service, foreign services, urban planning, military, and government. Many of our students have successfully furthered their education in graduate or professional school.
