History is the study of the past of our own society and how it emerged out of the traditions that produced it. At the same time, self-knowledge for students of history comes not only from self-discovery, but from a comparison of their own tradition and experience with those of others. It is only by studying the history of other civilizations and cultures that we can hope to gain perspective on our own. Of all undergraduate majors, History is probably the most flexible and far-reaching. Leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree, it is excellent preparation for a wide variety of careers - law, teaching, business, the communications media, public service, and medicine. Concentrations typically offered at most schools include United States, European, African, Asian, and Latin American history.  Because History is a popular major, some schools and colleges may have special application deadlines or screening procedures.
