What can you do with a major in history? You can become a leader of your society who is well educated, 有趣的, 通知, 合理的, and employed doing nearly anything you want to do! Careers for history majors are only limited by their own imaginations. 历史 majors may become artists, 部长, 小企业主, 军官, 保险代理人, 银行家, 政客们, 餐馆老板, 说客, 档案工作人员, 医生, 音乐家, 城市规划者, 架构师, 作家, 报纸编辑, 物理治疗师, 职业运动员, 演员, 社会工作者, travel agents…the list goes on!

Why take a history class (other than because it is required)? 历史 helps students to see the broad picture of American, European, and Asian history. By learning the events of the past in these areas students will be able to grasp a comprehensive picture of current events and be able to answer questions such as “Why did that happen?” or “Why does this group feel this sentiment?” Taking a history class will broaden students’ scope of both contemporary and past events and how they interrelate with one another, conceptualizing that although certain situations were long ago, they still pertain to the modern era.

When students can relate historical issues with modern topics they feel a bond and experience the enlightened thought of “Wow! 历史 IS important,” and, “I understand things a little better now.” Case in point: study the Great Depression and one can relate to our current economic tribulations, 做比较, but then also be able to assess the differences and WHY certain things are different.
