About the Department:
History is an incredible subject whether it be World, American, Environmental, Military, or a plethora of other fields. All of us create history every day, so it is important that we learn from it, strive to do our best to understand its relevance, and use it to make a positive mark for Christ on this world. Regardless of if you want to teach on the college level or work for the government or the private sector, the history department is here to help you. We have numerous internship sites in various states and a number of opportunities for our students in order to help them to receive the career position for which they are striving. Historians are needed in many areas of the public and private sector including, but not limited to, the National and State Park Service, United States Military, various corporations, law firms, Large and small museums, and much more. Also, our capstone course in History will prepare you for Graduate School by helping you develop your skills in historical research and writing, while also making sure you have received a strong background in World and American History. If you have any questions on your future as a major in History, please feel free to e-mail or call.
