Choose a general track based in United States, European or world studies, or organize your History major at the Southern New Hampshire University around a specific theme, such as religious, African-American, political, social, intellectual or economic topics, to name a few. SNHU's history major is designed to be comprehensive and flexible, so you can tailor your degree to your areas of interest.
See Yourself Succeed in History
As an Southern New Hampshire University History major, learn to analyze the choices of the past and how those choices have affected the world we live in today. You'll also develop advanced critical thinking and communication skills through an intensive examination of the elements of history – texts, images, objects, landscapes – and the crafting of contemporary historical arguments based upon those sources.
As a private, nonprofit university, SNHU has one mission – to help you see yourself succeed.
Internships & Outcomes
History majors can be found in a variety of professions, including lawyers, teachers, journalists, social organizers, economists and public servants. Whereas some majors provide specific training linked to one or two vocations, a BA in history prepares students for a wide range of career options. As a History major at Southern New Hampshire University, you'll gain a broad foundation in United States history and Western civilization, mostly through primary sources.
Our internship and study abroad experiences allow you to apply classroom learning to the wider world. We encourage students to pursue such opportunities as part of their undergraduate studies. Prior students have interned in museums and other historical arenas as well as in more traditional business-related areas. They have also studied abroad in Ireland, Italy, England and other locations.
