History Might Repeat Itself… But Sinclair Prepares for Your Future

Studying history at Sinclair will provide the facts of the past and give several interpretations about the significance of that past. You will learn how to judge the adequacy and appropriateness of those facts and interpretations and how they relate to each other.

Through our program’s courses, you can learn to understand and appreciate the extent of diversity in the world in ways you might not have known possible. By studying other countries and cultures, history becomes a strong foundation for your college education.

This program might be for you if:

  • You are interested in learning about the history of other places in the world.
  • You appreciate the diversity of the world, including languages, art, people, and more.
  • You enjoy separating fact from fiction and are a critical thinker.
  • You would like to learn more about what is happening in the present time.

History is both a science and an art which explain the past—as a science, history works to verify what really happened… the facts and as an art, history endeavors to construct interpretations of these facts which help to understand who we are and how we became what we are.

There are a number of career paths available to you if you are interested in the history program and its courses. Students who major in history typically go on to earn their bachelor’s, and possibly graduate, degrees in preparation for careers in education, college and university teaching, law, library and museum work, journalism, publishing, business, and even management.
