Bachelor of Arts in History

What will I learn?

Without knowledge of the past, individuals and societies become prisoners of the present—unable to understand the causes of present circumstances and present problems. As a liberal discipline, history aims to permit students to transcend their own cultural limits and, by the study of other societies in other ages, to open their eyes to the diversity of the human environment. It has often been noted that history is the first truly “interdisciplinary” discipline. This is true because everything, no matter how specialized, has a history, and therefore everything is a proper subject of study for the historian. In this department, for instance, the course offerings range not only from the ancient world to modern times, but also strive to give students a truly global perspective through the study of a diverse array of peoples and places.

Studying history at UCSB will give you the tools to:

  • make sense of historical change
  • analyze the world around you
  • evaluate evidence
  • identify historical patterns
  • recognize significant events
  • formulate powerful arguments
