研究过去,了解未来. History majors are among the best at analyzing, 批判性思维, and seeing connections — all valuable job skills.

Who are we? 我们要去哪里?? A knowledge of the past provides us with clues on those crucial questions of life. Want to be a politician, corporate president, lawyer, judge, journalist, or professor? The logical starting point is being a history major, full of useful skill-building.

These skills include writing and presenting information; analyzing ideas, data and information; examining evidence including documents, texts and interviews; and seeing connections and making decisions and reflective judgments. What employer would gloss over those invaluable abilities? Beyond that, 你会成长为一个人, one who better understands the world we live in and how we got here.
