BA History

The Bachelor of Art in History, offered 100% online, helps students look to the past as they study historical facts and historiography while combining use of in-depth research, critical thinking, and writing skills to help us understand the past, make sense of the present, and hopefully serve as a guide for the future.

A degree provides students with the opportunity to develop the essential baseline skills that employers need, as well as preparing students to enter fields such as teaching, writing, research, politics and government services, or for those who desire to apply to law school.  UMO is the only school in NC offering the History program online.
