Bachelor of Arts in History

The Bachelor of Arts, Major in History, will provide you with the opportunity to study the many peoples and cultures whose contributions have created the world in which we live today.

KPU's BA degree allows you to develop the knowledge and core competencies characteristic of a traditional BA program, while preparing you to respond creatively and innovatively to a range of challenges in KPU's community and our world. 

You will gain the literacy and analytical competencies demanded by twenty-first century employers. 

As a History student you will benefit from KPU faculty's commitment to teaching excellence and from the small class sizes at KPU.

The study of History is as relevant to new high school graduates as it is to mid-career professionals. 

By understanding the peoples and cultures that have created our contemporary world, you will be better able to navigate the complexities of our increasingly interconnected and globalized lives. 

While an interest in history may draw you into KPU's courses, they also offer courses that are relevant to you if you are a student in political science, business, sustainability studies, and many other areas of the university.

In lower-level courses, you will begin to build the critical thinking, intercultural, and analytical competencies necessary to succeed in upper level history courses. 

At the upper-level, you will undertake in-depth studies of particular areas or important themes in global development.
