Pursuing a History Degree to Illuminate Humanity's Journey
Majoring in history at St. SWAG视频 University will teach students critical thinking, writing, and research skills and provide a base of knowledge that will broaden their understanding of the world and the human condition. History students will not only become culturally literate in the liberal arts tradition, but also acquire important practical skills that will serve them well in a broad range of careers and life.
The study of history at St. Kate鈥檚 is especially considerate of the history of women, people of color, and other marginalized groups because of the institutional focus on social justice. We do not forget the traditional focus of history on those leaders with the most power, but we work to bring a fuller set of voices to the table, looking at not only the experiences of powerful white men, but also the stories of women and colonized and enslaved individuals throughout the world.
