About This Degree

Historians describe and analyze past events through writing and research. They usually specialize in a country or geographic region, in a particular time period, or in a particular field such as social, intellectual, or political history. As with all social scientists, historians are concerned with some aspect of society, culture, or personality, and have a broad liberal arts background. Business and industry are looking for people with these attributes, which makes the history major a good candidate for management and executive positions.
