Overview

Bachelor of Arts - History

The study of history at university goes beyond memorizing dates, battles and names, history at university looks at the backstory of events and lives - it puts things in deeper and broader historical context.

 

Discovering History:

The expertise of faculty members encompasses almost every region of the world, from Asia to Latin America, through Europe, Africa, the Middle East and North America. Many courses transcend national boundaries, and explore history with a thematic approach.

This program encourages students to challenge common assumptions about the past, to re-examine their worldview, and to ask fundamental questions about themselves, their society, and the world. 

The faculty work collaboratively to offer an innovative World History curriculum. The spirit of inquiry and cooperation that informs that project helps make studying history at St. Thomas an exciting experience in a friendly atmosphere.

 

Critical and Transferable Skills:

Studying History equips you with effective oral and written communication skills, as well as skills in critical analysis, research, interdisciplinary thinking, and curiosity and inquisitiveness.

The ability to successfully and precisely communicate ideas remains an invaluable asset to any organization or business, while the capacity to understand past practices and policies serves graduates well in their careers.

History graduates are able to trace the roots of an issue, think about a problem in a multitude of ways, and analyze it using multiple tools.

  • You are curious about why things are the way they are today
  • You want to gain a deeper understanding of issues you read or hear about in the news
  • You like to read and analyze things, and want to become more articulate orally and in writing
