PART OF THE GLOBAL CONNECTIONS FLIGHT PATH

Minor: History
(HIST)

Besides paving the way to careers in fields like government, law, journalism, and education, the study of history cultivates critical skills useful in all walks of life. Among these are the ability to communicate verbally and in writing, to conduct research on virtually any topic, and to analyze, interpret, and synthesize large quantities of information. The history minor cultivates the kinds of learning and skills that we regard as crucial for historical thinking and, more broadly, as integral to a liberal arts education.
