History

The History Major at UTC prepares students for careers in education, museums, archives, publishing, historic preservation, law, business, government, and medicine, as well as for graduate school. Since the field of history is vast and its methods numerous, students at UTC take a broad array of courses in World, American, European, and non-Western history. Students are challenged to critically engage with written, oral, and visual sources from the past as well as with diverging interpretations by historians. Studying history is more than just learning facts. As a core discipline of the liberal arts, the history major teaches analytical thinking, critical reading, expository writing, and effective communication skills, transferable skills necessary to succeed in the twenty-first century. Students intending to pursue a major or minor in history should enjoy reading, writing, and challenging discussions. They need to be prepared to work hard in order to reap the benefits of an exciting course of study. Welcome to UTC! Get involved: join the History Club, study abroad, apply for an internship.
