This history major also emphasizes critical and analytical thinking, and effective research and writing skills. Graduates with military history degrees can be found in historical preservation careers as curators, archivists, or educators, or in other professions requiring strong communication skills.

In addition to the institutional and degree level learning objectives, graduates of this program are expected to achieve these learning outcomes:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of key historical facts, values, and ideas that have shaped civilizations throughout history.
