PRINT | CATALOG HOME | BACK

Program Information/Mission:

The baccalaureate degree in history is designed to prepare students for a broad range of career opportunities. In addition to teaching, a history major is a preferred background for many careers: Law (a history B.A. is a preference of many law schools); federal, state and local government positions -- especially the Foreign Service, the National Park Service, and military careers; museum direction, library and archival work; the business fields of public relations and advertising; journalism and other media; and public policy and planning agencies. These fields are open to history graduates because their degree indicates to future employers they possess writing and research skills and a basic understanding of the world and its people.

Admission to the Program:

Two years of a foreign language may be required for an undergraduate degree in history and for entry into most law schools. Students should check with the school to which they intend to transfer.
