The History major offers an excellent education in writing clearly, thinking analytically and reading with curiosity. In addition to introducing students to peoples, ideas, and cultures that may be unfamiliar to you, the study of history helps put our own world into perspective. Because the past is as big as the world itself, it offers something for everyone.History Department Website
