History: The study of history helps students discover and interpret the innately complex and fascinating past. It broadens and enlightens minds and prepares students to become more active and effective participants in the future. Only an informed awareness of the past can provide the key to understanding what we are today and to influence what we will be tomorrow. Students majoring in history will find many fields open to them. Skills developed from this study, such as organization of diverse facts and opinions, and a clear presentation of conclusions drawn from those facts and opinions, are of fundamental importance in many professions. Researchers, librarians, lawyers, teachers, and others all benefit from the skills acquired through using methods of historical study.
