History, African American History and Culture, B.S.
The History Program provides quality instruction, a variety of courses, and challenging educational experiences to diverse student learners.
We teach students to separate the fact from the fiction and bridge the gap between past and present. History majors have to be one part detective and one part director, researching events extensively and then retelling the story in a way that captivates audiences.
Our program equips students like you with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the practicing historian, who actively studies and interprets the past. Graduates are prepared to study history in graduate school, participate in professional activities and succeed in a career. As a key part of the liberal arts curriculum, historical studies shape citizens who can think broadly and critically about themselves and the world, which is still shaped today by the hands of history. As such, our students have used their degree to succeed in a wide variety of careers.
