History is the key to the present. This important fact is sometimes overlooked by some members of American's present-minded society. If one is to understand the present and approach the future intelligently, it is necessary to have a clear understanding of the past. It is also the keystone to a liberal arts education because everything is intimately related to history.  It acts as a unifying agent that helps link other liberal arts courses together in a meaningful whole. But for many students who have an intense interest in history, the crucial question remains, "What is the job outlook for a history major?"

The programs at NDSU offer degree options in a variety of courses in North American, European and world history.

The major and minor curriculum guides can be found here.
