How did we get where we are today? Any time we ask questions about our present or where we're going in the future, we have to identify and understand our past. Through the study of history we can understand how our society and world has changed – and what has stayed the same.
As a History major at UST, you’ll use specific tools and techniques to study the past so you can better understand the present and plan the future. These tools include use of evidence, critical thinking, good writing skills and research – preparing you for a wide range of careers.
If you’re curious about how the past relates to the present and how critical research can make a better future, history is the ideal major for you.
