The study of history prepares students to live thoughtfully, to work in a wide variety of professions, and to participate as national and global citizens. A popular undergraduate major at Pitt, history develops skills (research and synthesis, critical reading, careful and clear writing and speaking) that are critically important in politics, law, business, teaching, and public relations.
