Explore the Department of history
As historians, we believe the past provides the keys to understanding the present.
From Boston to Beijing, we chase down evidence to explain what happened, how and why. We explore how people have lived in different times and places, and we present our findings as clearly and elegantly as we can. The study of history demands careful reading and clear writing. As a student of history, you will learn to present your arguments in a persuasive manner, orally and on paper. These are skills that will serve you well in just about any career.
