“A page of history is worth a volume of logic.” Oliver Wendell Holmes

There is little understanding of the present without a mature knowledge of the past. An informed awareness of our society and larger world is merely one of the benefits gained through the study of history at Williams. Our program also includes the development of critical thinking and writing skills – valuable tools in today’s professional world. More generally, historical study broadens the student's horizons while encouraging a reasoned and responsible approach to national and global institutions.

While historical insight enriches any life path from ministry to business to homemaking, a degree in history is particularly suited to those planning careers in government, law, and teaching.
