Explore History

Technology and big data drive our modern world, and people trained in history provide the context, cultural fluency, and ethical awareness to make meaning of it. Because they can make these connections, our graduates find good paying and rewarding jobs in expected fields like law, education, and public history, but also in unexpected places like corporate marketing, health care administration, and data analytics. We train individuals to sift through large quantities of information, interpret it, and persuade others to act. Our students are inspired by a diverse and award-winning faculty and by fellow students who are not afraid to question and debate. Many history students double major or minor in other fields. Studying history at the University of Kentucky will position you to succeed in a rapidly changing workforce, but just as importantly, it will fuel your curiosity and give you a deeper understanding of yourself and your world.
