The Department of History empowers students with a sense of the complexities of the human experience and a solid understanding of U.S. and World history.
The BYU-Idaho History Department offers various history degrees that fit every student's career and education goals. Students can pursue a major, minor, or cluster in their chosen field of history.
Students can choose which area of concentration they'd like to work in. Because of that freedom, it is advised that students prayerfully consider what experiences would best prepare them for their future careers.
Historians can specialize in archaeology, art history, research, literature, historical geography, and government but often find themselves working across multiple disciplines. Many careers require a broad knowledge of many historical subjects.
