History Program


Why Study History

The Bachelor of Arts Degree in History helps students reach their full potential as ethical, thoughtful, informed global citizens, who draw on core critical thinking skills to conduct research, analyze findings, and communicate effectively.  A history major, combined with a minor of your choice, will help you personally, professionally, and as you serve your community throughout your life.

Students majoring in history at USC Aiken study history in three major areas—American history, European History, and World History—both inside and outside the classroom.  We keep our class sizes small (usually under 25 students in our surveys and under 20 students in our upper division courses).  Outside of the classroom, our students conduct research in local archives, engage in service learning, and gain professional experience through internships.
