Cohen, Ph D J. Gettler, MA, Ph D University of Toronto Mississauga Introduction Historians study the past to understand it on its own terms, to gain insight into how our world has developed, and in order to influence the present.
The study of history covers a wide and diverse range of topics, from the history of aboriginal societies, conquistadors, ethnicity, fascism, labour, psychiatry, patterns of settlement and migration, politics, the Renaissance, revolution, to the automobile, slavery, international relations, trade unions, women's studies, and more.
The study of history is at the core of any liberal arts education. In order to make sense of political, social, economic, and cultural development, it is essential to understand historical change and continuities. History as a discipline partakes of both the humanities and social sciences: Close analysis of problems, critical examination of evidence, and persuasive oral and written communication are all hallmarks of historical inquiry.
History graduates will gain both a broad overview of the contours of history and in-depth knowledge of one or more specific regions, time periods, or thematic specializations.
They will understand how social processes, political ideologies, economic trends, and environmental changes have intersected with individual and collective human actions to shape historical change and, ultimately, the world we live in today.
History graduates will comprehend how history is written, including the skills and methods of historical research, the use and interpretation of textual and other evidence, and the choices involved in various theoretical and analytical frameworks.
They will be able to critically read and assimilate large amounts of information, weigh evidence, draw well-informed conclusions, and present cogent, analytical arguments.
The analytical and communication skills one develops by studying history are critical to a great variety of careers. History graduates put their training directly to use in such fields as law, politics, business, government service, museums, libraries and archives, documentary filmmaking, journalism, international relations, urban planning, teaching, and many other areas.
With emphasis on how to analyze issues, read critically, do productive research, delineate a case, and present evidence in support of that case, studying history equips one with both the skills and knowledge for an ever-changing workplace and society.
