Classroom

B.A. in History

Degree Overview

The abilities to describe, understand, and communicate effectively are skills in demand not only by graduate and professional schools but also by employers in business, industry, and government. The study of history develops your ability to read critically, think logically, and write effectively. In addition, by studying human interaction in the past we gain insight into the present and the future. Understanding history helps us to better evaluate current problems at home and abroad and to develop solutions to those challenges.
