How can we make sense of our rapidly changing world? History provides one answer. By understanding earlier events and trends, we can better grasp the present and even glimpse the future. Whether you major in Finance, Accounting, Economics or another business field, studying History prepares you to understand the larger global picture. Bentley historians have investigated why the U.S. Constitution protects freedom of religion, how 19th century Chinese doctors adapted to Western science, and the ways American investors impacted Latin America, among many other topics. Beyond the useful knowledge they offer, History courses sharpen your mind and develop your ability to communicate. History signals to future employers that you are serious, curious and well-rounded.

With more than 990 chapters in all 50 U.S. states, Phi Alpha Theta publishes a quarterly peer-reviewed journal and offers scholarships and other academic prizes to its members.
