About the Department
History is the record of human experience. Its study is a first step in learning about ourselves and our society — about economics and politics, psychology and sociology, mathematics and science, the arts and the humanities. For students whose undergraduate major is history, career opportunities are numerous and varied. Medical, law and other professional schools favor applicants with history majors because of their broad background and research skills. Moreover, while teaching has long been a popular goal for history majors, positions in government (local, state and national), in publishing and advertising, in communications and in business also await those students whose human perspective and intellectual discipline have been developed in history classes. Beyond the purely practical consideration of a profession, the study of history is exciting in its own right.
