As a History major at the Southern New Hampshire University, you'll gain a broad foundation in United States history and Western civilization, mostly through primary sources. Then, with the help of your advisor, you'll go on to design your own history degree incorporating coursework from throughout the university.


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 SNHU 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.

Internships & Outcomes

History majors can be found in a variety of professions, including journalists, social organizers, public servants, and more. Lawyers, teachers, and economists often have history degrees, although additional studies are required for these professions. 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.

The 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.
