As a history major, you’ll study the origins of contemporary civilization and its political, economic, social and cultural aspects; awaken to a consciousness of other cultures, ways of thought and standards of value; recreate as fully and as accurately as possible significant periods of history; learn how to find, analyze and interpret historical evidence; and develop a sense of historical perspective. History majors develop an ability to communicate well, both orally and in writing, and the capacity to think clearly and analytically.
