Field of Study: History, General
Description: A British novelist described the past as a “foreign country: they do things differently there.” History students explore that foreign country. You unlock the secrets of the past and the present, learn who you are and who you could be. Studying history means sifting through layers of evidence, looking for clues that lie not just in words and documents, but in images, fashion, the law, customs, music, and other traces left from the past. Historians look for discernible patterns in people’s lives, work, and thought: the meanings they carried then and the meanings they suggest now.
