The History Major provides students with that knowledge of history which is essential to understanding ourselves and society.
Our changing world demands that professionals also be versatile. We equip students not only with knowledge, but with a set of valuable skills applicable in a wide range of vocations, from teaching and archival work, to writing and the practice of law. Our students learn to write and communicate effectively, to conduct sound and thorough research, to think critically, argue positions, analyze information, and employ a variety of technologies in communicating their growing knowledge. History majors complete a common core of foundational courses as well as a concentration in either secondary teaching or historical studies.
