Why Not!

The study of history has long been a core part of a liberal arts education. Students of history learn more than the past. They gain an appreciation of those around them, of diverse experiences and of the many factors that shape political, social and cultural change.  Additionally, history majors develop skills that prepare them for work in any field: how to conduct research, analyze findings, draw evidence-based conclusions and present their findings to the public.
