Program Overview

The History degree cultivates a critical understanding of the human past and develops skills of historical research, analysis, and communication that enable students to engage the world in which they serve in a thoughtful, positive, and creative manner. Graduates may pursue a variety of career paths as communicators, educators, researchers, writers, and public historians. They will also be prepared for graduate school in history, law, or intercultural studies.

Students may choose either the B.A. degree track (which includes two years of world language studies) or the B.S. degree track. The faculty recommends the B.A. track for students who intend to do graduate work in history.

By adding just one more year to your undergraduate degree, you can also earn a Master of Arts in Teaching that credentials you to teach history at the high school level!

Every undergraduate student pursuing a four-year degree at Johnson earns a double major – a major in Bible and Theology and a major of their choice, like History. Click here to learn more about the Bible and Theology major.
