Know the Past. Build Better Futures.

In a complex world, understanding history is more important than ever.

Why study history?

A history degree opens doors beyond the realm of academia. As a graduate, you’ll enter the global job market equipped with exceptional analytical and critical thinking abilities. Our students master the art of information gathering and analysis — and are inquisitive, thoughtful and adaptable. Our alumni excel in numerous fields, thanks to an education that promotes curiosity, insight, and flexibility.

Getting involved in student organizations and the community has provided so much support. My internships at museums have helped me realize I was interested in working at museums as a career.
