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.
