History provides a general background for studying the humanities or social sciences and understanding the contemporary world. Preparation in history is especially useful for careers which require careful judgment on the basis of limited evidence, such as the United States Foreign Service, journalism, and law, as well as teaching and a variety of civil service functions.

The Department of History supports the concept of international education and encourages students to investigate opportunities for overseas study described in the Global Affairs section of the catalog.
