E&H History majors learn about the past and hone skills needed to succeed in today’s skill-centered, globalized world. Students will acquire the prerequisites for success in any profession by studying the past with an analytic eye and a critical perspective. We do more than memorize a series of dates and events - we learn how to study patterns of change over time, identify major historical themes, and consider the implications of the past for the present.
