Student’s (and parent’s) Professional Online History Teacher FAQs

Why Study History?

In today’s world where advancements in technology, medicine, and the financial sphere seem to be the future - it often begs the question: why study history? Stearns (1998) stated that we must study history to gain access to the laboratory of human experience. A fair point. 

Histories contain information about how past societies, systems, ideologies, governments, cultures, and technologies came into existence, how they operated, and how they have changed. Our rich history provides a detailed picture of where we stand today.

Developing better knowledge of history means developing knowledge of all these different aspects of life. Thus making students of history more rounded people, better prepared to learn in all their academic subjects.

What skills will you get from studying History?

This intellectually rigorous course is an excellent way for students to develop highly sought after and transferable skills. These include being able to effectively communicate complex ideas, the ability to research, analyse and evaluate information, both orally and in writing, and the capacity to make substantiated judgements, all whilst developing independent work skills.

What careers can studying History lead to?

A History related degree is useful for a number of careers, including teaching, librarianship, banking and commerce, the law, publishing, museums and art galleries and a wide variety of social work.

Many history degree graduates go on to share their interest in the subject by becoming teachers, at the secondary level or within universities. The first of these options usually require completion of professional teaching qualification, while the second route often requires completion of studies up to Ph.D. level.

How can history help us today? 

For those in business, especially marketing, understanding history plays a significant role in understanding consumer behavior. Future strategies are formulated based on trends and history. Reviewing historical facts and details and comparing them with samples today help develop new postulations and theories in research work. The importance of history in today’s world must not be underestimated because history helps shape the future. 

Learning history can also help land great job opportunities in the world today. With a history degree, one can land job positions in Journalism and media, heritage consultancy and planning, the department of foreign affairs, immigration, and many more. Some prominent figures with a degree in history include Lloyd Blankfein, who studied history at Harvard University, and Brian Moynihan, the CEO of Bank of America, who got a history degree from Browns University.
