History

The best history degree provides students with a deeper understanding of the human condition and relationships between historical developments and contemporary social/political trends.

Mount Mercy University’s history major investigates the social, economic, political and cultural developments across the wide spectrum of people, from the beginning of civilization to the present.

To provide the best history education possible, faculty members focus on developing an academic foundation that includes research, analytical writing, and oral presentation of work in both informal and formal settings. These skills prepare students to enter the work force with strong analytical and communication skills, or to further their exploration by pursuing a graduate degree in history or a number of related fields.

Mount Mercy also offers a history minor, which can be combined with any of the university’s majors to expand a student’s interest in the history of any subject offered.
