The history major fosters an understanding of ourselves and our world through the study of the past, both remote and recent. The program develops critical thinking and a broad background in issues and ideas from our past. The major thus prepares students for transfer to B.A. programs in history. It also offers students fundamental preparation for careers in business, government, teaching, and a number of professional fields (for example, paralegal or law careers).
