History majors uncover the past – its mysteries, tragedies, and triumphs. With the benefit of hindsight, you will investigate how previous societies have dealt with common human concerns and evaluate the outcomes.
Knowledge of history provides a sense of context for the political and cultural developments that have shaped the contemporary world. A minor in history is a great option for students who are fascinated by the past but have chosen to major in another discipline.
