History Major

Understanding Today by Studying Yesterday

In the Reinhardt History program you'll learn why the world is the way it is now. Our professors teach courses that deal with a wide variety of times and places in the past, an essential component in understanding the present. But while studying, say, the Civil War, medieval Europe, or colonial Latin America, you will learn valuable research and communication skills transferable to graduate study and a wide range of jobs.

What You Can Do

You will learn 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.

Recent history alumni have studied at graduate schools such as The State University of West Georgia, Kennesaw State University, Louisiana State University, the University of Mississippi, Auburn University, Emory University, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and Columbus State University. 

Others are working with the Atlanta History Center, Sea World, ProSys Information Systems, Krauther and Co., and Roswell High School.

Our 40 or so majors form a cohesive and collegial group on campus, and we would love for you to join us!
