About the Program

History has much to teach us, and those who study it are rewarded with a deeper understanding of how the past is a powerful force that shapes our own lives and times. As a history major, you will examine American and global history within several contexts. You will study the historical experiences of American women, immigrants and African Americans; trace the upward and downward mobility of our nation's rich and poor; and learn how diverse cultures created our complex society. Through this multidimensional approach, you will develop the knowledge and analytical skills you need for a fulfilling career in teaching, government, community activism, business or law.
