Historians develop, challenge, and revise narratives and interpretations of human events to understand both past developments and their implications for the present. Through close analysis of primary sources, students learn to frame historical questions, pursue independent research, and present their ideas clearly and persuasively. The history major prepares students for a broad range of careers, and our graduates have become professionals in fields including business, education, historic preservation, information science, journalism, law, and public service.
