The History Major and Minor at Cedar Crest

Gaining a historical perspective on our global society will serve you well in any career.

An education in history will prepare you to participate knowledgeably in the world around you on a local, national, and global level. As a member of an increasingly interconnected world, you will benefit greatly from an in-depth exploration of how and why societies came to be where they are today. By understanding what has driven the choices made in the past, we can better understand the circumstances of the present—a perspective that that will serve you well as an employee, leader and responsible citizen.

Majoring in history at Cedar Crest College will prepare you for graduate studies or a career in a variety of fields such as historic preservation and restoration, education, government, communications, the social services, and business.
