Alumni Career Spotlights

We could tell you all the reasons we think studying history is important. That it is the sum total of the human experience; that experience serves as a mirror reflecting today’s events.

That history is the key to understanding crises of war, revolution, famine and social upheaval. And that studying history involves analysis and hones critical thinking skills

We are not doing that. We decided to ask alumni who are using their degree in unique ways to tell us why they chose to study history and how it helped them prepare for their careers. Click on the links below to read and hear about their careers.
