BA in History

Learn about the modern world since 1500 and how to make historical arguments as an undergraduate. The history program at Webster University gives students valuable cross-exposure to relevant work in complementary fields.

As a Webster student, you'll gain in-depth knowledge of one geographic area or historical epoch while studying specific historical topics. Your area of research could lead to a career as a historian, librarian, writer, archivist or politician.
