History

Bachelor of Arts

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

The study of history centers on analyzing change over time—historical contingency—and the deep continuities shaping our historic contexts. It equips students with tools for critically thinking about the world they have inherited and empowers them with the questions and ideas to assess how they will participate in that world. Our curriculum is rich in its global expanse as well as the range of methodological approaches, all of which keep our Jesuit values of social justice at the fore. Studying history at Regis helps students cultivate empathy and inhabit perspectives unfamiliar from their own.

Cultivating skills of critical thinking and reflection alongside oral and written communication, the history major at Regis is the basis for a wide range of career paths. It prepares students for careers including education and professional writing, public service and government employment, library studies/archival expertise and museum curation and public history, among others. Equally important, a history major will prepare you for a lifetime of learning and critical, ethical engagement with your community, both locally and globally.
