The public history and museum studies minor complements this major.


Informed. Excited by possibility. Ready to make an impact. Do these phrases describe you? If so, you should consider studying history at Springfield College. Our major provides students with the background necessary to understand the complex and rapidly changing world in which we live. The core of historical understanding allows individuals to be educated and informed citizens, ready to affect change and guide others along the way. 

Graduates have pursued careers in education, government service, law, business, diplomacy, libraries and museums, and public relations. As you can see, the history major will prepare you for what you want to do, and help you forge your path ahead.
