History is studied for many reasons. It is our social memory, telling us who we are, where we belong, and where we seem to be going. History takes us out of the present, broadens the horizons of our minds, makes us aware of human possibilities, and confronts us with the awareness that our present culture is neither the only way, nor perhaps the best way, that human beings have lived.

A major in history provides broad preparation for careers in teaching and business, as well as for professional training in law, journalism, management, and university teaching. But most importantly, history helps to develop a breadth of vision, a capability for critical thinking, and a fundamental understanding of human society permitting a person to grow and adapt to the changing career opportunities in the modern world.
