The story and interpretation of human achievements and experiences is the subject of historical study. History includes analysis of economic, social, and religious institutions, as well as literary, cultural, and intellectual movements. This program provides lower-division preparation for students transferring to most senior institutions and is appropriate for students intending to obtain a bachelor’s degree in history.
Many history majors continue their education to become teachers in secondary or post-secondary education institutions. They teach students, grade papers and create lesson plans. Some history majors become librarians, assisting patrons in locating materials and researching topics of interest. Others find employment in museums, where they assist visitors by answering any questions they may have on the exhibits. In addition, the history program helps prepare students to succeed in any job which requires a solid, liberal-arts education.
