As an undergraduate major, the discipline of History provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in our increasingly global society and economy. Emphasizing societies, cultures, and politics in the United States and around the world, the History Program helps to impart understandings of human motivation and interaction which form an essential background for all current activities whether they are in the realm of business, law, journalism, politics, education, or public history (i.e. National Park Service, museum work, historical restoration, etc.) In addition to gaining knowledge in their subject areas, students also develop skills in intensive reading and expository writing, as well as in logical and analytical thinking. As a consequence, students acquire a variety of skills which make them highly adaptable and valued by today’s employers.

Academic Advising

The Department of History provides extensive academic advising services which include both group and individual advising. Through these sessions, the academic advisor can offer detailed program and course information which can help students successfully complete their graduation requirements in a timely manner. Because of this, all History majors are encouraged to seek advice about program requirements and course selection each semester. To schedule an appointment, please contact the History Department Office.
