A degree in history also provides students with the skills necessary for success in a wide range of careers and professions ranging from business to law, social services, and education. These skills include training in the collection, analysis, and evaluation of information; critical thinking; clarity of expression orally and in writing; and the ability to make independent judgments. Finally, the department seeks to train majors in the specific skills and knowledge necessary for public school teaching and for graduate study in history or in professional schools.
