Strong Foundation, Bright Future
Huntington University offers a broad program of study in history to prepare students for graduate studies in history and other fields in the humanities; for teaching history and social studies at the middle school and high school level; and for entry-level positions in business and government.
You will learn both content and process. We place a strong emphasis on three things:
- studying history as a means of improving your “cultural literacy”
- striving to understand your own world view and that of others
- acquiring a mastery of critical historical methodology — that is, understanding how historians work.
You may also participate in a variety of off-campus learning opportunities.
Building a Strong Career
Our alumni have gone on to graduate school in fields such as history, law, international relations, library science, theology, business, education, educational administration, journalism, and even exercise physiology. They have become members of Congress, judges, teachers, businessmen, theologians, librarians, international consultants, Congressional staff members, college administrators, and college professors. A Huntington history degree opens many doors for many different people. The University's Enterprise Resource Center can help you explore career options through internship opportunities.
