The discipline of history creates a bridge between the past and the present—between where we come from and what we have yet to accomplish.

TLU’s history degree program creates historians who help us understand the present through the study and interpretation of the past. The historian attempts to reconstruct and represent the course of human developments in order to shed light on modern-day concerns.

A degree in history teaches students to search for and analyze information, interpret meaning, and reach an informed decision. The history program offers a major in history with specializations available in pre-law, public history, and liberal arts. The history program also offers a minor in history and a minor in business methods for historians.

A major in history opens up a wide array of career opportunities for students. They can become an educator, communicator, editor, researcher, advocate, information manager, business person, consultant, congressional aide, or any number of other career paths.
