The Midwestern State University History Department provides a broad range of courses to prepare students for a career and/or graduate studies. Visit us on Facebook.


Courses and Programs:

We offer courses and programs in U.S., European, and Latin American History. The advanced classes are usually small, and the faculty works closely with students - often on an individual basis.


What you can do with a degree in history:

The study of history offers a wide variety of options. Many of our students become teachers at the K-12 or college level. Some pursue federal, state, or local government jobs like city managers or state archivists. Others go into such fields as law, journalism, museum work, library work, or the business world. Companies often recruit liberal arts graduates who have an education providing them with a rich and varied background and who demonstrate skills in written and oral communication and the organization and synthesizing of complex information. There is no better field of study than history to sharpen these skills.

Careers in History


Scholarships are generally awarded for academic achievement, special abilities, ACT or SAT scores, and upon other criteria as defined by specific scholarship programs. Many scholarships are available in addition to special fellowships which include the Floyd F. Ewing and the Forrest D. Monahan, Jr. awards.
