History Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Learn from the Past and Frame the Future with a History Degree

Students interested in pursuing a bachelor of history degree will have many options for their future career including government, archives, museums, historical research, and scholarly associations. A History degree enables students to combine their studies with a number of minors to further enhance career options. For example, recent graduates have combined their major in History with Art History, English, and other Social Science fields, such as Criminal Justice.
