The Bradley Advantage

As a history major, you’re immersed in the past with an eye to the future. Courses help you understand causes and consequences of events that shaped the world as you know it. You gain a foundation in Western and American history, with options to learn more about specific world regions. The program includes a cross-cultural element, which enables you to study abroad or complete internships in international settings. You also can earn a high school education degree in history/social studies. If you’re interested in business, the history major easily pairs with a business administration minor.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley's history program successfully prepares you to enter the workforce or graduate school in a range of settings. In recent years, most students found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They're working for AmeriCorps, the U.S. Navy, museums and newspapers. Others are continuing their education at institutions such as Arizona State University and San Jose State University.
