The study of the human past can work as a powerful tool to explain the human present. It is only in studying who we were that we can discover who we are. Such knowledge is essential to good citizenship, of both America and the world.
In studying the past, students of history are trained to think critically and write effectively. As well as being inherently rewarding, these skills are transferable to a wide variety of career choices, such as business, public service, archival and historic preservation, print and broadcasting media, and education.
Reinhardt’s history graduates are everywhere – teaching history at Roswell High School, working in the Georgia Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs, and studying International Relations at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. They’re commanding soldiers in the Marine Corps, managing businesses, pursuing seminary degrees and law degrees in Atlanta, and studying history at Louisiana State University and Ole Miss.
