    Our History program will prepare you to understand the past with a critical eye toward the present and future. You'll develop the perspective, research abilities and thinking skills that employers say they want and that our world needs! Your learning experience will be shaped by your goals, so you’ll choose all but two required courses from an array of topics to customize your study. Participating in faculty-led trips abroad, attending public lectures, double majoring, or enrolling in one of our graduate bridge programs will enrich your experience even further.

    Digital Humanities Deep Dive

    History Professor Pamela McVay, PhD, has her students create digital exhibitions that incorporate video, sound, still images, text and multiple links to online resources for a deep dive into compelling subjects.

    Valuing HERstory

    You'll have the chance to take a history course that shines a light on women’s agency and activism.


    The most common careers for alumnae with the B.A. in History are in the public sector (government service, non-profits, non-governmental organizations, policy studies organizations). History graduates are also well prepared for careers that require the ability to work in groups, apply critical thinking, solve research problems, and communicate well in speech and writing. Students who complete the program and do well in their classes are prepared for graduate study in history, political science, historic preservation, law and museum studies. Students who intend to enter graduate study in History should include relevant foreign language training in their undergraduate programs and should consider taking at least one course in statistics. Students interested in a career in law should consider participating in our Pre-Law advising program and should look into our direct admission agreements with Cleveland Marshall College of Law and Catholic University's Columbus School of Law in Washington, D.C.
