History analyzes the course of human affairs through evidence and reason. It sheds light on our present by showing how individuals and groups in the past made decisions, exercised power, and responded to changes through revolution, migration, war, ecological disturbance, and globalization. History also explains how people understood and sometimes exploited class, ethnicity, gender, race, and sexuality, and how they conceptualized the world through religion and ideology.

The Major in History at Colorado State University is designed to enlarge students’ knowledge about the past, improve their ability to think logically and critically, and sharpen their powers of written and oral expression. It is an outstanding choice for students planning further professional study in law, medicine, ministry, academia, business, and many other fields.
