History

  • Carlow University Students in Classroom Discussion
  • The study of history and the skills developed in writing history provide a sound basis for positioning yourself in the increasingly competitive job markets of today and tomorrow, for your formal and informal education later in their lives, and, of course, during your college years. A major in history is one of the best foundations for success in career and academic plans. 

    Knowledge of history is essential for success in a rapidly changing world. Understanding humanity’s recorded experience gives you the information and perspective you need in order to be able to think in an orderly way about the world: its economics, politics, cultures, legal systems, and religions.
