Why Study History?
Studying history provides us with the perspective to understand ourselves and the world we live in today. In the process of historical study, we use analytical skills to incorporate evidence into oral and written arguments. A historical understanding remains vital to participatory citizenship, can help us gain greater empathy and prepares us for the workplace in the 21st century.
Careers in history include jobs in teaching, media, interpretative centers and museums, research centers for businesses, governmental agencies, and other institutions, and much more. The invaluable skills gained from studying history can lend to success in any profession.
