University of California, Davis
History A.B.

What can we hope to understand by studying the past? What relevance could the lives of people in ancient Egypt, medieval China, even in such recent epochs as Soviet-dominated Eastern Europe or colonial India have to our modern world? In analyzing the past, historians analyze the creation of the present. The events, people, triumphs and mistakes of the past are the key to understanding the forces and factions at work today. As a history major at UC Davis, you will work with some of the country''s foremost historical researchers and writers, whose areas of expertise span the ages and the globe. Your study will prepare you for postgraduate study in history, law or other areas or to enter any career requiring independent critical thought.
