The diverse coursework of the BHSU history major explores the worlds of American, European, and regional history. Living in the Black Hills also gives student the opportunity to study the Gold Rush, tour ghost towns, and learn about the Native American Cultures.
Your professors will guide you as you consider various career options. Although many historians enter the teaching profession or go to graduate school, others find employment in government agencies, museums, historical societies, research organizations, and archives.
