History major
Altoona, PA

"There are so many career paths with a history degree, from teaching to research and beyond. Our professors are engaging and teach us to apply what we learn. And we have opportunities to learn through travel—like to D.C. and Gettysburg. It’s a great major and has taught me so much."
