The study of history helps students acquire the historical perspective which places human events in a chronological sequence, emphasizing the dimension of time and causality.

History students explore a broad spectrum of ideas, such as nationalism, romanticism, and Marxism, as well as such themes as national and social histories, progress, industrialization, the history of women, war, rural life, and death and dying through the ages.

History students develop the ability to analyze, synthesize, and make informed judgments. Open to history graduates are careers in law, teaching, county, state and national government, historical societies, the ministry, business, and others. They might also choose to become archivists or professional historians. For teacher certification requirements, see the Education section.
