History (B.A.)

Request Information


CAS Students smile and laugh during class discussion Our history students are good detectives; they are curious, able to puzzle out and piece together evidence, and respectful of their “witnesses,” the people of the past. They have a deep curiosity about and insight into human character in all times, places and cultures. They like to work with many different kinds of texts and enjoy an intellectual challenge.

Our program has students consider the diversity of thoughts and cultures through courses in U.S., European and world history across the centuries. Students have access to world-class research facilities and collections, such as the Library of Congress and the National Archives. We also have a chapter of the national history honor society, Phi Alpha Theta, and are a member of the Capitol Area Association for Peace Studies (C.A.A.P.S.), which gives students the opportunity to present research papers at student conferences.

Students in history courses develop vital skills in written and oral communication, critical thinking, and research methodology, skills that will serve them in almost any profession.
