The study of history unveils the complexity of human existence in the past and supplies insight into the present and future. History majors learn not just about the past and its relevance to today, but they also learn to think, write and speak analytically, skills that may be applied in many careers. We invite you to join us on this journey through time. Read more about the Department of History. »
