Historians examine, analyze, and interpret change and continuity in human societies over time. History provides an opportunity not only to learn  about the past, but also to gain important insights into the present. By understanding what has happened before, we can better understand and evaluate current information and events. As part of an integrated Social Sciences Program, the History major is designed to enhance your understanding of the world through the application of social scientific research skills to domestic, regional and global problems, as well as issues of diversity. The major provides practical insights into why and how the worlds we live in work the way they do.
