The broad liberal arts curriculum of the History Department offers students a traditional education and preparation for many different professions. The content courses in history, for example, require students to think analytically, conduct research, and to communicate effectively both in written and oral forms. These are highly adaptable skills. The department assists each student by providing career guidance in a professional orientation course. One history professor advises pre-law students. The department provides excellent preparation for traditional graduate study, exemplified by TTU history majors who have earned advanced degrees at the outstanding graduate schools.
