Ask historians why they study History, and they will often begin with a deeply personal question. Why am I the person I am? How did the community in which I grew up shape me? Where did the attitudes and ideas that I see in the people around me come from? What are the attitudes and ideas of people of varied cultures around the globe? At Saint Mary’s you will join a community of students and professors asking those profound and often personal questions.

In this vibrant community, you will learn about people, cultures, and events, in addition to learning how to do oral history and contribute transcripts to local archives, study visual and material culture, and interrogate archives and documents, all in pursuit of the questions that you find important. The History - Women's History Concentration is delivered by Saint Mary's College.

Coursework in history will prepare you to live a thoughtful life in addition to laying the groundwork for a variety of careers. The communication, research, and writing skills you gain from studying history help prepare you for a range of successful career paths. Our recent graduates are attending law school and graduate school in a variety of disciplines, along with teaching, working in the Peace Corps, corporate world, libraries, museums, among many other careers. You can pair your history major with virtually any other major such as English, philosophy, religious studies, business, theatre and more. It’s your major. It’s your life.
