Bachelor of Arts in History

You’ll start off learning from top, award-winning professors. All of our faculty teach at all levels, including introductory courses. Small class sizes of between 15 and 25 students will help you develop strong connections with these professors. You will receive the support you need to excel and grow.

Whether you choose to concentrate in U.S., European, or Asian and Middle Eastern history, you will take writing-intensive courses, intern at an area museum, library, archive, school, or magazine, and complete a senior capstone research paper.

We’ve built real-world applications into our curriculum. Your internship will develop your career skills by connecting you to local treasures: the Old State House, Mark Twain House and Museum, the New England Air Museum, and CT Explored Magazine. Faculty-led field trips will let you explore the 9/11 Memorial, the African-American History Trail, and early NYC history.

As a UHart history major, you will be able to literally see the world. Our study-abroad programs—more than 50 in all—span the globe. But that’s not all. Ongoing archaeological digs, in collaboration with the Judaic Studies program, offer you a once-in-a-lifetime experience in places like Rhodes, Greece, and ancient Biblical sites in Israel.

Our graduates enter a diverse range of career paths, working in fields such as law, business, education, publishing, and museum administration. Some pursue advanced degrees in areas ranging from ethnomusicology to Native American history. Whichever route you choose, your professors will stay in touch, talk over your career options, and help you travel with confidence after your studies at the University of Hartford.
