What makes an OBU History degree special?

The study of history is about more than memorizing dates and facts. It examines the forces and events that have shaped the world. By studying history, you will acquire a framework for understanding the present and anticipating the future. You will develop research, writing and presentation skills that will serve you in any career. History classes include the perspective of other division areas, giving you a much broader understanding of human behavior and events from pre-history to the present. The study of history will help you learn to think critically, to not just accept another historian’s view of the world, but to arrive at your own.

What are OBU grads doing with their History degrees?
