To have a clear sense of where you’re going, you have to know where you’ve been. When you study history, you not only prepare for your own future — you also become equipped to carve a path for others, whether it be high school students, local government, the nation or the world.
Hone valuable, transferable skills like careful reading, persuasive writing and critical thinking. Examine human behavior and learn to understand the world around you through the lens of different cultural perspectives and ethical values. Your studies will give you a deeper context for politics, religion and your own faith.
You could go on to be a government leader, businessperson, educator, attorney, judge or just about anything else you want. You’ll be well-prepared for graduate school, if you choose, and will join the rest of our graduates in scoring well on entrance exams like the LSAT and GRE. Whatever your path, our history degree will help you get there.
