Missouri University of Science and Technology
Those who study history are educated to analyze trends and events, to write and speak intelligently about the lessons of our shared past, and to ultimately teach all of us the value in challenging what we know and accept as truth. History professionals are masters of critical thinking and evaluating the ideas and principles that shape the human experience.
History is the study and analysis of the events of the past to discover the roots of humanity, where we have been, and where we are bound to go again.
Where do historians work?
With a degree in history, you can use the lessons of the past to consult businesses on future endeavors, analyze current market trends, give advice about foreign relations, research fascinating eras, or become a lobbyist. Historians become museum curators, archivists, teachers, and librarians. Today’s historians are branching out to become lawyers, producers, editors, and government leaders.
S&T has several history faculty members that are recognized experts in military and industrial history.
One of our professors was named among "America's Top Young Historians" by the History TV Network.
S&T history graduates have become teachers, professors, lawyers, military officers, and museum curators, among other professions.
Our history faculty are accessible, and involve their students beyond the classroom, continually researching and offering opportunities for students to be involved in research.
History classes are taught by Ph.D. instructors, including first-level courses.
