History Major

History is the study and interpretation of past and present societies, peoples, ideas, and places.  You’ll learn a lot about your own part in the world story as well!

The history program at Stillman College will ensure that you graduate with the necessary knowledge and skills for a successful career in the academic and professional community. History majors take core classes in World Civilizations, African-American History, American Government, and Historical Research and Writing.  You’ll also have the opportunity to take a wide range of elective courses, from criminal justice to African history, and from the Civil War to Latin America.
