The study of history examines how men and women lived in the past throughout the world. It is the study and research of major political, cultural, social, and economic events. When students pay special attention to the continuities and changes in human communities over time, and to interactions among people of different cultures, they are able to understand their own life experiences as part of a historical process. The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire offers both a liberal arts major and minor as well as a teaching major and minor in history.
