History analyzes the past - people, actions, interactions and behaviors - to discover insights for better understanding the present world. History courses work extensively on critical thinking and writing skills which are valuable in other college courses and the professional world. History majors find careers in the law, politics, museum exhibit creation and public outreach, archival work, and a wide variety of public and private sector jobs.
