A degree in history offers some of the best intellectual and life training available. Studying history helps improve your skills in analysis, communication and problem-solving. These skills are necessary in whatever profession you might pursue in the future, whether it be in archival or library work, business, journalism, the legal field or teaching. More important, historical inquiry exposes you to alternative perspectives and thereby helps make you a better citizen of a global and dynamic world.

Curriculum and Instruction
Undergraduate Program (Bachelor of Arts)
The undergraduate program in History is broadly conceived to include all aspects of human development and heritage: political, economic, social, cultural or philosophical. Hence, the degree plan in history is not limited to history courses, but should draw from a wider range of related offerings including anthropology, art history, economics, government, literature, philosophy and sociology. Students who plan to teach history and/or government at the secondary school level should select this plan area.
Graduate Program (Master of Arts)
The graduate program in History is designed to facilitate an advanced level of historical inquiry in European, Latin American, or United States history. The program features small classes that allow for close interaction with excellent faculty committed to teaching and advising students. You will learn from active and accomplished scholars engaged in diverse historical fields and benefit from access to extensive library resources, including the archives of the Johnson Space Center — a collection of international importance.
