History Major (BA)


A major in history prepares and empowers students to use their knowledge of the past to analyze and engage problems and issues in the present. Students of history develop research, analytic, and writing skills. History majors excel at gathering and evaluating evidence, analyzing a wide range of texts and other sources in context, framing and evaluating arguments, and explaining local and global events. As a result, the history major prepares students for work in many fields where such skills are needed, including law, politics, research analysis, nonprofit work, grant-writing, community activism, marketing, advertising, as well as history and social studies teaching and museum work.
