Our History major equips you with a solid understanding of the people, cultures and events that shaped the modern world. And, through a broad range of business courses, you’ll explore how history remains relevant to today.
With a history degree from Bentley, you can work in government or political positions, public policy, international affairs or journalism. Some students use the degree as a stepping stone toward graduate work in business, law and related fields. You can customize your degree through a concentration in one of two fields: regional history (American, European, Asian or Latin American/Caribbean) or thematic history (e.g., social, economics or military history).
Every History major must complement their program with foundational business studies, leading either toward a minor or a second major in Business Studies. This ensures you leave Bentley with broad business skills, in addition to historical expertise.
Internships are an integral part of the Bentley experience. See how a group of them that spent a summer working for leading information storage firm Iron Mountain used their experience to broaden their education, and better prepare themselves for a successful career.
