The history baccalaureate program is organized for citizen-students who hope to place their world in historical perspective as a means of living rich and intelligent lives. Through understanding change as well as continuity in human institutions, students can grasp the forces shaping their present and future.
Education in History at the University of Illinois at Springfield is broad-based humanities training, providing students with research capabilities, analytical methods, and communication skills that are useful in many fields. The curriculum prepares students for careers in history, politics, government, law, journalism, writing, and administration. Through internships and experiential learning opportunities, students are able to test career possibilities where the research and analytical skills of the historian are appropriate.
