B.A. History


Program Overview

The history program at High Point University prepares students for a changing world by helping them understand their place in the broader human experience. Our students apply the skills they learn in the major — research, analysis, writing and communication — to any path they choose in life, whether it is in academia or a professional or business career. Students of history learn to think critically, analyze complex issues, make sagacious inferences, and contribute meaningful insights.
