History

Undergraduate

B.A. History

History is the discipline of critical inquiry into the human past. The history major introduces students to the study of causes and consequences of change through an examination of social, political, economic, cultural and intellectual developments over time. The enterprise of history is much more than a recitation of facts and dates. It encourages students to examine the values of their society and those of other societies. It prepares students to read critically, think analytically and argue logically about the events and forces that have shaped past and present worlds. These skills have served students well in a wide range of careers in business, law, public policy and advocacy, education, journalism historical societies, museums, and archives. This program is offered only at the Clarion campus.
