The Bachelor of Arts in History promotes an understanding of the past to prepare our students for whatever the future may hold, and fosters transferable analytical and communication skills through course work and internships that are vital to both private and public sector employment. Our students gain a well-rounded education and the confidence of knowing they can research and critically assess any topic presented to them. We focus on interdisciplinarity—economic policy, religiosity, sexuality, constitutional theory, legal frameworks, and governmental structures—from an historical perspective in both a national and international context. A degree in history can open countless doors and our students go on to successful careers in law, politics and public policy, publishing, journalism and broadcasting, public history (e.g. museums), and education, among other professions.
