The study of history offers a framework for a liberal education and the background that is essential for understanding the contemporary world. Through analyzing interpretive studies, accounts by witnesses to past events, and historical records, students come to appreciate the complexity of human experience. By examining changes in the past, they develop a broad perspective and the ability to weigh evidence and argument. Students who plan to major in history should include in their high school studies four years of social studies, four years of English, and preparation in a second language. Students who transfer to the university at the end of their sophomore year should have completed a year of college-level history and at least one year of a second language. Careers: History provides a foundation for careers in teaching, journalism, international endeavors, law, Foreign Service, business, government, ministry, librarianship, museum and archival work, and historic preservation. Work beyond the bachelor’s degree is required in many of these fields.
