Career and Academic Opportunities

The History BA/MPA Double Owl Pathway provides humanities majors with a clear career trajectory and provides the MPA with an additional source of well-qualified and motivated students. Graduates of the history major are skilled in critical thinking, research and writing, and have content knowledge of politics, public service and government affairs over time. History majors will have completed course work in US, world and European history, thus contributing to their abilities to understand and participate in multicultural contexts. The partnership between these programs strengthens the relationships between the Humanities and the Social Sciences within our College.
