A history degree allows students to develop the skills and knowledge associated with a liberal arts degree, while providing them with the analytical skills necessary to compete in a global economy. Graduates may possess the foundational structures that prepare them for graduate degrees in business or law school.

A survey of the world spanning the regions of Southern Europe, Ancient Greece, England, Russia, through the modern Middle East and the United States will be covered.
