June 11, 2024

History majors thus gain the tools to examine and understand the world of the present by examining and learning about the world of the past, with each student designing a course of study tailored around those elements of the past that most fascinate them, whether a geographic region (e.g. Europe, Asia, the United States, Latin America), or a theme that crosses regional and temporal boundaries (e.g. religion and culture; race, ethnicity and inequality; law and society; globalization and transregional connections; technology, science and medicine. At UC, students can make the major customizable to their individual interests, allowing them to pull from a wide range of history classes to create a major that matches their specific area of focus.
