About the Department

The study of history provides a unique perspective and understanding of the human condition, past and present. The examination and comprehension of history promotes the development of the research, analytical, and communicative skills needed in many fields. Libraries, historical societies, museums, archives, and similar institutions provide career options for the history major, as do government service, journalism, the ministry, education, politics, and the theater. A background in history also affords an excellent preparation for either medical or law school. Furthermore, many businesses hire people with a good background in an area of the humanities such as history.
