The history major fosters an understanding of ourselves and our world through the study of the remote and recent past. The program develops critical thinking through exposure to a variety of historical themes, analysis and evaluation of evidence, and different points of view. The major prepares students for transfer to B.A. programs in history. It also equips students for careers in business, government, teaching, law, or journalism.
