Welcome Message

Hello, and welcome to the History major!

I am one of eight professors who offer the history courses at the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, which cover all regions of the world, including the United States, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Take a moment to explore the details of the history major. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Your professors and I are available outside the classroom to help you with your studies and discuss career opportunities available to History majors.

Why Choose This Major?

  • The study of history is timeless. History allows one to understand how things change, why they change, and why some elements of a society persist unchanged.
  • Studying history teaches one how to evaluate different sources of information, statements, records, and data, and to identify and understand varying interpretations of the material studied.
  • Understanding the past is basic to an understanding of the present.
  • The successful history graduate can confidently pursue graduate school or seek certification to become a secondary school teacher, a process made easier than ever by NSU's master's and doctoral degree programs in education and Broward County's alternative certification program.
