Why study History?

The study of history is vital to a liberal arts education. It is the discipline most concerned with understanding change. Virtually every subject has a history and can be analyzed and interpreted in historical perspective and context. The analysis and interpretation of history provides an essential context for evaluating contemporary institutions, politics, and cultures. There is another reason to study history: it’s fun. History combines the excitement of exploration and discovery with the sense of reward when you figure out the hows and the whys? History is essential to the traditional objectives of the liberal arts, the quest for wisdom and virtue.

But does studying History get you a job?

Many history majors make successful careers for themselves in fields such as civil services, business, law, public affairs, tourism and travel trade, library science, museum studies, teaching, travel writing to name only a few! Some history majors elect to continue graduate studies with the goal of earning a masters degree in history. A master’s degree in history can help you develop your skills in research and critical thinking and enhance your employability in a number of fields.
