Degree Overview

We are all historians. From remembering your name to where you parked your car, your sense of what has occurred in the past makes it possible for you to find the right words and make well informed personal and work decisions.

The value of history cannot be overstated. Without it you cannot understand a culture, a country or the world. Not to mention yourself.
