Major or Minor in History

Examining the past with an eye on the future

History is the study of past events, and at Clark you’ll examine the impact of those events on everyday life. As a History major, you’ll choose an area of study – United States, European or global history – and use conceptual approaches ranging from political and diplomatic to social, intellectual and cultural, to think critically about past problems and build connections to the future. A diverse curriculum with courses on every major geographical area of the world prepares students to impact it with jobs in teaching, law, government, journalism and international affairs, or for further study in graduate school.
