Degrees and Programs
A concentration in History is, at its core, a course of study meant to develop wisdom. Just as individual humans rely on the analysis of their past in order to plot a course forward in their life, so too does a society require people who will act as custodians and analysts of its collective memory to continually improve itself. The History concentration trains students in the use of critical reasoning to recognize and analyze causality through time as well as develop their communication skills (both in writing and speaking) to fulfill the traditional role of Historians as storytellers. These skills will be particularly useful to students pursuing a career in law, government, diplomacy, and international business, as well as those who wish to become teachers and/or professional historians.
