History

The Bachelor of Arts in History exposes you to the vast social, cultural, military, economic, political and intellectual details and experiences of the past to better understand and impact the future.

More than memorizing dates, you’ll discuss topics openly to develop your critical thinking and analytical skills. You’ll examine events from a cause-and-effect position, but also come to understand individuals, groups, societies and nations from every angle. Students can choose from a wide range of courses, studying many key historical events from the Russian Revolution to the Vietnam War.

Our faculty are seasoned historians dedicated to the study of the world’s past, gaining a deeper understanding of the present and developing insights into how the world may change.

A Bachelor of Arts in History degree allows you to develop the skills and knowledge associated with a liberal arts degree, while providing you with the analytical skills necessary to compete in a global economy. Our alumni have pursued graduate programs and a number of meaningful career paths, including:

•    Teaching and scholarship
•    Law
•    Private research for financial institutions
•    Public research for local, state or national governments
