BVU's history minor provides students with research, analysis, and communication skills that can be applied to a wide variety of careers, including two options in secondary history education.

While history is technically defined as the study of the past, it is also, arguably, the lens through which we understand modern behavior, societal trends, and how the beliefs and morays of yesterday transform into the morality and laws of today. BVU’s history minor provides an in-depth look at American, European and World history. Businesses today value people with this breadth of knowledge and understanding, which makes history minors highly versatile in a world that requires adaptability. 

BVU offers two areas of study in this minor for those looking to teach grades 5-12:

  • American History
  • World History

Other employment opportunities include:

  • Historian
  • Curator
  • Politics
  • Journalism
  • Council Bluffs
  • Creston
  • Denison
  • Estherville
  • Fort Dodge
  • Marshalltown
  • Mason City
  • Ottumwa
