UTSA’s History Program

This program combines the development of informed perspectives, analytical skills, and mastery of content areas that cover the United States and different regions in the world to study a wide range of historical persons, events and time periods. A major in History teaches a student to write effectively and expressively, to think critically, to analyze arguments, and to communicate ideas. These skills will aid in the pursuit of a career in a variety of fields.

At UTSA, you can earn a History degree with an optional concentration in Social Studies. Concentrations are declared after you’ve been admitted and have met with your academic advisor. A concentration in Social Studies is designed for students intending to teach history, geography, government and economics at the secondary school level.
