Introduction
History classes taught in the Department of History, Political Science and Geography encourage students to (1) have a solid understanding of and interest in U.S. and World history, and a sense of the complexities of human experience; (2) read and write well; (3) communicate publicly and participate in small teams; (4) have some knowledge of doing research in a university library; and (5) discuss history on a general political, social and moral level. In addition, History Education majors should develop a sizeable repertoire of lessons, pedagogies and approaches to history which are appropriate for teaching at the secondary level.
 
Career Opportunities
History degrees, consisting of exemplary basic liberal arts courses, have traditionally provided employment in business, government, law and other out-of-history careers. This is particularly the case in graduate programs, like law, that have no specific pre-professional curricula. There are also many para-historical fields which draw on history--archivists, librarians, curators, museum administrators, national park curators. History majors are also valued in private sector jobs which are heavily information-based like journalism. More academically oriented students who major in history often pursue graduate education in English, foreign languages and the humanities, to name a few. And then there are, of course, teaching opportunities at the secondary and higher educations levels.
