History students at Lincoln College study the past in order to gain a better understanding of the world in which we live. Our History Program helps students understand different societies in an ever-changing world. It also helps us understand where our society came from and how it has emerged in time. Students in this program of study not only explore the past, gaining insights into how societies change over time, but are also provided opportunities to develop vitally important and widely applicable reading, writing, research and interpretive skills.
As a history major, you’ll find history in everything from a 1956 Elvis Presley poster to a 1934 ticket stub showing the price of a movie. You’ll even find it in last summer’s playlist of your favorite songs.
History majors learn how to interpret objects and written documents from the past. They also read the works of published historians and evaluate their ideas.
History Major Courses Include:
- Western Civilization I & II
- United States History I & II
- The United States in the 20th and 21st Centuries: 1900 – present
- Elementary, Middle, and High School Teachers
- Private Practice Lawyers
