As a history major, you will learn critical thinking and communication skills that will help you succeed in virtually any career you choose. Many of our graduates pursue careers in education, especially as high school history teachers. A number have chosen to continue their education by pursuing graduate studies in history, education, and other professional fields. History majors have also found the skills they developed through our program — complex, analytical, and creative thinking — prepared them for successful careers in business.
From curating special exhibits to attending lectures and panel discussions on a wide range of issues, history majors here at Elms really get involved.
