History (B.A.)

As a Marymount History major, you will focus on European and American history, the foundations of Western civilization. History is also part of the Liberal Arts Core, providing students across the University with exposure to the discipline.

Do you want to teach History to students in middle or high school? Marymount offers an option to pursue teaching licensure for History and Social Science. You also have the opportunity to pursue a minor in Public History, study abroad, and participate in internships and research in areas of special interest.

World-renowned museums and libraries like the Smithsonian and The Library of Congress are a Metro ride away, making it easy to pursue those special interests.

Many History majors move on to law school or teaching. Many others find satisfying careers in museums, business, information technology, nonprofit organizations, politics, and public relations. Emphasis on the development of critical thinking, research, and writing skills – plus the internship – make Marymount History majors highly employable.

For those interested in History & Social Science Education, a teaching licensure program is available as well.
