History

History reveals the core of human experience – our triumphs, flaws and motivations. You’ll tackle the big topics of the past and present in a program that is tailored to undergraduates and writing-focused. That’s a good thing, too, because all the writing and researching will prepare you for graduate school or a professional career.
