Bachelor of Arts

The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.

Are you a critical thinker with effective writing skills and a desire to know more about the past? Do you enjoy learning about current events and world news? If so, you may be interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in History.

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.
