Major Minor

Major in history and you’ll open the door to unlimited career options. Employers in every field seek out people who have special insights into history, culture and behavior. At ONU, we’ll expose you to many possible career paths and help you find the one you’re passionate about. Maybe that is a career teaching Social Studies or adding a minor like Public History/Museum Studies.

Large institutions just can’t provide the individualized attention and opportunity you’ll find here. Our history students co-author conference papers with their professors and serve in student government. They study abroad and intern at national museums. They travel to New York for the Model UN program, head up student organizations, and present their research at regional and national conferences.

Here, you won’t be a face in the crowd. You’ll be part of a close-knit family. From the time you arrive on campus until you graduate, you’ll be guided by a faculty advisor. You’ll enjoy small class sizes and amazing friendships. Our dedicated and distinguished professors will get to know you. They will support you in your coursework, research, internships, and career preparations. They will become personally invested in your success and open doors for you.

You’ll arrive on campus as a student, but you’ll leave a seasoned professional. Upon graduation, you’ll be ready for whatever the future holds – whether it’s attending graduate school or embarking on a career. The field is truly wide open.
