Studies in history allow us to better understand the past on its own terms and provides us with a context for understanding the world as it is today. History develops a number of skills critical to flourishing in a modern, increasingly diverse, globalizing world, including reading, writing, communication, analysis, and empathy. There are over forty historians who you can work with, covering almost every imaginable time period, location, and theme.
Any Barrett student who is considering majoring or minoring in history should contact the lead FHA, Stephen Lazer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A thesis in history is almost always a semester or yearlong research project, ending with a well-supported and well-argued paper. Applicable themes, topics, length, and other requirements should be decided between the student and their thesis advisor, as these may shift on a case-by-case basis.
