Learning history isn't just about the past, it's about understanding how the past created the world of today. Majors of the History program of Heidelberg University make great educators, researchers, advocates, and communicators who are able to work in a variety of industries.


Studying the past provides unique insights into the future. Most of the issues facing the modern world, such as economic globalization, terrorism, and political upheaval, are rooted in specific historical events and circumstances. Understanding the roots of these issues helps you understand the issues themselves and makes you a more informed global citizen.

History is a record of human achievements, downfalls, joys, customs and ways of thinking that, in total, have affected the lives of others. Students taking courses in the History program of Heidelberg University can learn much from the experiences of the past and present, which enable them to have a greater understanding of how events and people influence the lives of human beings within nations or the world.


Our history majors have gone on to discover and thrive in a myriad of professions. We encourage every student to complete at least one internship, and those opportunities often lead to new passions and future jobs. Jobs like historic preservationist, museum curator, archivist, legislative staffer, foundation grant writer, and historian.
