History - A Solid Foundation for Career Success
Our dedicated faculty & staff assist students as they develop the analytical, research, and communications skills that will enable them to excel in their chosen careers, such as teaching, law, government, public history, business, management, non-profit organizations, and public service.
The Department of History is part of the College of Arts and Sciences. Many of our students continue their education in graduate programs at other universities, including Law schools. Our students become informed citizens, capable of thinking logically and intelligently about the past and its relevance to the present.
