Why History

Our prize-winning and internationally-recognized faculty educate students for 21st century careers. Alumni work in business, technology, journalism, law, museums, medicine, libraries, government, politics, education, and countless other areas.

History provides the intellectual and entrepreneurial tools to thrive in a world that is highly specialized and globally interconnected. Students develop the ability to write well and to interpret complex information. They can offer creative solutions to challenging problems, handle ambiguity, and work across cultures—and those are just some of the many learning outcomes that benefit history graduate and undergraduate students.
