The major in History is designed to increase an understanding of the present and future by studying and interpreting the past. The content and methodology of historical studies is basic to a liberal arts education in the 21st century and to an understanding of the world and the dynamics of change. History also provides a firm foundation for many careers. Recent graduates have found their way into various professions, such as museum and curatorial positions, law, journalism, teaching, government service, foreign service, as well as admission to graduate study in a specialized field.

Required courses in the History major provide introductions to the primary historical traditions of world and U.S. history, political theory, methods of historical research and writing and other disciplines such as economics, literature and art, which bear on the historical process. Students are encouraged to use elective hours to develop depth in an area of emphasis such as American or European political and cultural histories or historic preservation. Students may also prepare for the teaching profession at the elementary, middle and secondary levels.
