When you study history you take a look into human behavior and interactions and how those change through time. You also work to interpret the past as it applies to the present and future. If you think about it, every significant act that happens today will someday be considered history to our future generations. If delving into the past and how it has shaped our world fascinates you then History may be the degree for you. You will have the opportunity to transcend stereotypical thinking and examine what happened in the past, why it happened, what the consequences were, and how improvements can be made in the future for the betterment of society.
