History Pathway

"I have thought that if people would only learn history, they would learn to learn everything else....
History is simply humanity.  And history will humanise all studies."
♦ G.K. Chesterton

A History Pathway provides a foundation for pursuing a bachelor’s degree in history and leads toward a general understanding of the complex factors that influence human behavior. Graduates have ultimately pursued careers in a wide variety of areas including teaching, law, business, public service, government, historical interpretation, and museum work.
