History B.A.

Learn to Think Like a Historian

Your Bachelor of Arts in History from University of Houston-Clear Lake will help you become a true historian who can craft, analyze and interpret stories about the past to better understand the human experience. Using documents, objects and other sources, we seek to view the past through the eyes of the people who experienced it. This endeavor--an exciting, ever-changing act of interpretation--enriches our knowledge of key developments across time, while also cultivating a deep empathy for humankind.

A Solid Foundation for a Successful Career

UHCL History majors work closely with dedicated faculty to learn about the people, events and ideas that shaped daily life in places as far removed as Ancient Rome and as familiar as the 21st century United States. More importantly, our majors acquire valuable training in advanced critical thinking and writing--both skills that make a Bachelor of Arts in History one of the most versatile degrees undergraduates can earn.
