The Department of History offers the undergraduate student a variety of courses in American, European, African, Asian, Latin American, and Middle Eastern history. Studying history equips students with the tools to understand the complexities of this modern, globalized world. As a history major or minor, students develop critical thinking skills, learn to write persuasively, and deepen their cultural awareness. While some graduates go on to study history at a graduate level, others thrive in professions such as law, business, finance, government, journalism, and teaching.
