History is as much something you do as something you learn. In the classroom as well as the field, you will collect and analyze historical data, develop a historical perspective for current events, and demonstrate an ability to communicate both orally and in writing. A degree in History prepares students for a successful career in education, public service, preservation, and many other fields.
