Bryn Mawr College - Bryn Mawr, PA

  • BA

History at Bryn Mawr is about questioning and explaining how the past has been constructed, understood, and made into what we call "history". You'll find that our teaching emphasizes interpretation over factual narration, and that we offer students many approaches to reading, researching, and thinking about the past. We'll challenge you to play an active part in the making of history as a type of knowledge, rather than merely consuming the past as a reader and spectator. We'll teach you to recognize the changing meanings of history, as well as the changing relationship between present and past. We don't expect all of our majors to become professional historians, though many have gone on to distinguished academic careers. We want to prepare you for a wide variety of future life choices: go to "Careers for History Majors" to see some of the many career choices made by our majors: they might surprise you!
