The history major at Chapman University provides students with the knowledge and tools of history, but also provides a sense of roots, and a broader perspective on the diverse regions and peoples of the world. The BA in history teaches students how to think, how to analyze different kinds of problems, and provides a solid foundation for such careers in teaching, law, business, historical preservation, or archival management.
What makes Chapman’s History Department unique?
