The History major provides an excellent liberal arts education that prepares students for a wide variety of careers. Some History majors want to work as historians, and they go on to graduate study in History or pursue public history careers in museums, libraries, and archives. Others use their in-depth training in research, writing and critical thinking to pursue careers in business, law, government or media. History Majors gain a deeper understanding of U.S. history and World history, choosing from courses examining a wide variety of regions, historical periods and themes. They take a methods class providing training in historical research and then do original research projects in upper-level seminars and in the senior capstone seminar.
