WIU History - The Past, The Present, and Your Future
Welcome to our Department and to our webpage! In the WIU History program you will find dedicated faculty and staff ready to assist you in developing the analytical, research, and communications abilities you need to excel in your chosen vocation. Our graduates work in business, teaching, the law, government, public history, management, and the voluntary sector. The skills and knowledge you learn in History translate into fulfilling, well-paid careers because we offer training for a lifetime of success. We foster an appreciation for History, encouraging you to read deeply and to understand how past and present combine in your future.
At Western, we will help you become informed citizens who think logically, intelligently, and critically. A historical perspective encourages you to understand the place of contingency and the importance of context in the world around us.
