History Department

Students of history learn, above all, the skills of the historian—to read, analyze and express themselves well. They study the past to learn from it and to prepare for a variety of future careers. While students focus on a variety of subjects (culture, military, gender, race, politics) or a specific geographic region in their major, they leave here with a broad, international perspective on history. The major is flexible and works well with other majors and minors. It also offers students the ability to study abroad.

Learning Goals:

  • Research, write and present a senior project following professional guidelines.
  • Present and defend a historical argument in a public setting.
  • Prepare a career-planning portfolio.
  • Participate in at least one off-campus co-curricular activity in which students demonstrate connections to their study of history.
