A Degree in History is the study of the past, particularly as it has been communicated through writing. However, a degree in history does not simply mean that you have memorized a string of dusty names and dates. Rather, a history degree teaches you to draw lines of cause and effect through time, to interpret past events and documents, and to piece together disparate pieces of information into one coherent whole. As a history major, you’ll develop an attention to detail, the ability to synthesize ideas, and strong research skills, which will all be of value to prospective employers.
