Your interest in the past helps you prepare for future career success and, at Fontbonne, a dedicated faculty that provides the foundational knowledge you need to reach your goals. As you earn a Bachelor of Arts in History, you’ll look at ideas and cultures throughout time, with an eye toward how they have shaped the present. You’ll develop the strong reading, writing, and critical thinking skills that are widely applicable in a variety of fields, from law to government to business to education and beyond.
And you can either earn a degree in history or choose a degree in history with a secondary teaching certification in social studies, which allows you to teach at the high school level. If teaching isn’t for you, we offer through our numerous partnerships a number of opportunities to explore career options in museums, libraries, development and grant writing, law, and the parks service.
Your studies with Fontbonne begin in the classroom but extend well beyond the halls and libraries of campus. Add to your education through these and other unique learning opportunities:
