Earn a degree in History
History is the study of past events, people and changes over time. Understanding how and why events occurred… interpreting historical evidence about those events… and synthesizing evidence into written arguments. History is also about passion, beauty, and the search for truth, a search that creates engaged, empathetic, and informed citizens who seek to understand and better human society.
Excelsior College’s Bachelor of Science in History program emphasizes critical thinking, written analysis, and an understanding of diverse perspectives on the past. Learn how to interpret the past in the context of various cultures and perspectives and apply that knowledge to current social and political issues. History is a broad and rewarding discipline: graduates go on to work in government or military positions, act on their political ambitions, apply their well-rounded knowledge to advance in their current careers, or continue their education.
