Bachelor of Arts in History
"To be ignorant of what happened before you were born is to forever remain a child."
Nescire autem quid antequam natus sis acciderit id est semper esse puerum.
A Bachelor of Arts degree in History provides a general understanding of the complex factors that influence human behavior. The discipline of history is a central pillar of a liberal arts education playing an essential role in helping students to think critically and in developing their ability to communicate complex ideas. History graduates are expected to be proficient in written and oral communication, conscientious and exacting in research, and thoroughly grounded in the skills of analysis and interpretation. Graduates have ultimately pursued careers in a wide variety of fields from education to public service. Moreover, history remains among the premier pre-professional degrees for students intending to study law or medicine.
