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 will examine the impact of those events on everyday life. As a history major, you will choose an area of study — either geographical or thematic — 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 offers courses that focus on various geographical areas of the world, and prepares students to impact that world with careers in teaching, law, government, journalism and international affairs, or for further study in graduate school.
