Why History?

In the history program you will explore past human experiences while developing your critical thinking skills. As part of the program you will conduct research; find and analyze evidence; and learn to communicate clear and logical conclusions.

Students who concentrate in history may find fulfilling careers in politics, government service, teaching, law, public relations, journalism, religious ministry, library science, and many more.
