How does the past impact our present? What about our future?
How do we interpret what has happened and use that information to create a better world?
The history program at Tennessee Wesleyan University will help prepare you for a variety of careers or classroom teaching in the various disciplines related to history. The program views history with a non-western focus, from the use of cinema, art, environment, and literature.
History students are highly encouraged to explore the liberal arts disciplines throughout the university. The program deliberately has a smaller course loud, to encourage students to sample minors and other courses, to get the full breadth of liberal arts study they can bring back to their history classrooms.
History majors looking to go into education can complete their degree for secondary education, preparing them for licensure to teach grades 7-12.
