The study of history engages students with the big questions of change and continuity; social, cultural, political, and economic evolution; and understanding and appreciating one’s place in that evolutionary process. Students will take away practical skills and competencies that allow them to construct their own arguments, making them participants in the ongoing examination of these questions, while providing them with a set of skills that can be used in many different environments and contexts.
Many historians become teachers. Others become professional editors, work in museums or archives, or serve in positions with state or federal government agencies.
