The student of history is a traveler in many lands. Like all travel, the study of the past broadens and enriches the human mind and provides us new perspectives on our lives today. The Bachelor of Arts in History offers two options for approaching this vital study. The social science pre-credential option is designed for students whose love of history leads them to teach history and social studies in secondary schools, while the general option attracts history enthusiasts considering a variety of careers (in business, law, museums, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and more).
