What Can You Do With a History Degree?
- <blockquote class="quote-block--simple"> <p> “Each history professor actively goes above and beyond to make connections with their students. I like staying after classes and chatting with my professors. They are very down-to-earth individuals.”</p> <p class="blockquote-author"><strong>Price Tarbet</strong>, Class of 2022, History</p> </blockquote>
Elite Speaker Programs
The Dr. Arnoldo De Leon Department of History hosts a variety of speaker programs throughout the year, bringing historians, researchers and historical authors to campus. ASU’s annual Holland-Harrell Foreign Affairs Speakers Program also invites former ambassadors to campus to provide students with a broader worldview and a look at potential career opportunities in the Foreign Service.
Gain practical experience through research opportunities with your professors and internships at regional historical sites and nonprofit agencies, including the ASU West Texas Collection, Historic Fort Concho, Historic Fort Chadbourne, the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts and Downtown San Angelo Inc.
