What is history?

History explores the past to understand the present—and shape the future. Through careful observation and evaluation of information, you’ll seek explanations for human events, past and present. A history minor develops skills in critical reading and writing that form the basis of a solid liberal arts education and is a valuable credential to add to any major.
