The study of history is the endeavor to understand the present by becoming knowledgeable about the past. History is the context of all human activity, and gives students the depth needed to understand society and their place in it. Students may take courses to prepare for a major in history or to fulfill general education requirements.
Career options include business administration, law, teaching, social services, journalism, finance, law enforcement, public relations, advertising, and government service.
“History to me has always been about the plight of the underdog. But history also teaches you to use so many different skills—writing, argumentation, and the ability to find and provide evidence to support your thesis. It instills valuable critical analytical skills, and all of those skills—the ability to read, interpret, communicate, deliver a message—are transferable to basically any line of work.”Read More about Miles Stanley-
