As a disciplined and rigorous study of the past, history teaches students skills that involve research, analysis, and writing and that span several subject areas. We build these skills in our students inside and outside the classroom with experiential opportunities and engaged learning—many of which are enhanced by additional funding through the Wyatt Endowment. Since history prepares our graduates to enter a range of career fields, we believe strongly in mentoring our students throughout the degree-seeking process. Each history major or minor receives one-on-one advising so they can put their degree to work.
