What Can You Do With A Major In History?

History is an important aspect of liberal arts. It is the study and research of major social, political, cultural, and economic events of the past, providing perspectives on how they have shaped the world. It creates a connection between curriculums, nations, and racial, ethnic, and economic boundaries. The study of history develops civil appreciation and helps to build the skills of analysis, communication, critical thinking, problem solving and research. These skills can be utilized in a wide variety of areas including business, law, politics, social service, and education.
