examines the processes that have made today's realities. History
is an evolving record of emotion, aspiration, frustration,
and success. Historians deal with the goals, fears, interests,
opinions, and prejudices of people in the past. What made
people the way they were? What is the impact of their thought
and action on people today and what is their impact on people
tomorrow? As a study of people, history offers both a necessary
understanding of one's place in the human experience and the
conceptual framework for a lifelong avocation.
Careers usually require bachelor's or advanced degrees.
