History

Mission Statement

The History major is designed to familiarize students with the basic facts of both American and world history. In addition, the curriculum is designed to foster and develop critical thinking skills, research proficiency, and oral and written communications skills. By the end of the senior year, students will be well-prepared for both teaching and research at the professional or graduate school level. As historians primarily evaluate and present evidence connected with the past, History has always been an attractive pre-law major. However, the skills associated with a History degree are widely sought-after in a wide variety of different fields and disciplines, including business, academia, and other professions.
