Bachelor of Arts with a major in History

Program Overview

Our History program immerses students in the laboratory of the human past, under the guidance of a renowned faculty who teach courses about real people and their triumphs and failures. We show how humanity has shaped cultural, economic and political forces, both close to home and far-afield. With a varied and flexible curriculum, students choose their own concentrations, taking advanced courses to suit their interests and needs. Our students learn to think rigorously, evaluate arguments and evidence, conduct historical research, and write clearly and precisely. The skills and knowledge they acquire empower them to engage in meaningful discussions about past events that still shape and impact our society today. The history degree teaches the analytical tools and transferable skills desired by employers, and suitable for a wide range of careers: Teachers & Educators, Researchers, Museum Curators, Information Managers, Authors, and more.
