History Major

 Rosemont campus.

The study of history is invaluable to the understanding of the human experience. History helps us to understand people and societies, the importance of history in our own lives, moral understanding, identity, and good citizenship.

The History major provides students with an appreciation of the variety of world cultures. Learn how religious, economic, social, and political institutions make one culture distinct from another, and how these institutions develop over time. They also acquire research and reporting skills that are useful in teaching, law, social service, government, journalism, business, and museum careers.

Careers for History Majors

History majors don't just learn about history, they obtain marketable skills for a variety of career paths. The history program can be tailored to meet the needs and special interests of students. With the small size of the college, faculty members are easily reached and students have the ability to work with faculty members on professional research projects.
