History graduates will gain both a broad overview of the contours of history and in-depth knowledge of one or more specific regions, time periods, or thematic specializations. They will understand how social processes, political ideologies, economic trends, and environmental changes have intersected with individual and collective human actions to shape historical change and, ultimately, the world we live in today.
