A Student of History
Whatever your reason for studying history, we welcome the opportunity to work with you to develop the skills of our discipline: identifying and evaluating primary sources; framing a research question in conversation with the best relevant scholarship; building an interpretation of the past; and synthesizing material into a convincing narrative.
Most importantly, we hope you will experience the intellectual excitement of combining curiosity, research, and well-informed imagination, and that your study of the past will enrich your college experience while preparing you for the future.
Major or Minor in History
History majors select a geographic specialization such as U.S., European, or global history, or may choose, in consultation with their adviser, to define a thematic specialization that is comparative or transnational in its approach.
If you excel in history, consider applying to our Honors Program. Pursue an original, in-depth research project and complete a thesis during your senior year.
B.A./M.A. in History
Continue your research in history after receiving your B.A. from Clark. If you excel as an honors student, you may be eligible for our Accelerated Degree Program, with your fifth year tuition-free.
