Through the study of history, you can gain an understanding of the past as well as several widely transferable skills. By learning to find, evaluate, interpret, and synthesize documentary evidence, students of history develop their abilities to think critically and to express themselves clearly and persuasively. Students of history bring a historical and cross-cultural perspective to discussions of current affairs and can participate in public life as informed, thoughtful and articulate citizens and leaders.
