History B.A. or B.S.

The history program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is designed for students preparing to teach and for those interested in such fields as law and library science. The department requires students to take coursework in U.S., world regional, and global/comparative history. Students may also take a concentration in race and ethnicity.

Explore Career Opportunities in History

Many history majors or minors find employment in teaching, but some seek jobs in government. With a few courses in business and economics, a history major can enter the business world, and history is one of the traditional majors for professional study in law, theology, and library science. History students must complete at least one professional bridge from fields including business management, nonprofit management, public history, or data analytics.

A history minor enhances the teaching possibilities for students majoring in other social science fields, in international studies, or in world languages.

Get Involved on Campus

​History Club is a student led organization that organizes discussions, film viewings and trips to museums and historical sites for students interested in the discipline.

Phi Alpha Theta is a professional society whose mission is to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. We seek to bring students, teachers, and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.

More opportunities can be found on the Stevens Point Involvement Network (SPIN).
