Are you interested in a History Major?
The awareness and incorporation of history into our daily lives fosters personal growth, professional competence, and civic responsibility. The study of history incorporates all aspects of human experience throughout time.
Students who undertake the study of history develop a frame of reference with which to master other disciplines and build a strong foundation for a career in any field.
Consider supplementing core history requirements with electives that will sharpen logical, critical, and analytical thinking. A general understanding of the mathematical sciences, economics, legal studies, and political science, coupled with the ability to express oneself in both written and spoken English, is important. Students should select subjects that focus on human thought and behavior, such as psychology, anthropology, sociology, and comparative literature. These courses provide excellent training for professional careers in education, government, business, law, and social work, as well as advanced work in academics.
