There are two reasons I chose to major in history. The first is that I find the narrative nature of the subject the most compelling way to convey and consume information. The second reason I chose history is that I believe history is the subject that offers the most variety and versatility. Within the realm of history I can learn anything from public health to warfare. Being a history major has also equipped me with the skills to analyze information and identify trends, as well as the ability to clearly and concisely write my insights. I would recommend history as a major to anyone who has a wide array of interests and wants to be able to effectively synthesize information.
