There is something for everyone at Southeastern. Explore our undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs, typical career paths and related fields – then decide which one is right for you.
Southeastern's graduate program in History prepares students for careers in history, law and other disciplines that require knowledge of how the past affects the present and future – including teaching, government service and business – or doctoral studies in history. Students in the program learn to read intelligently, think analytically, write clearly, assess past trends, predict future developments and understand the real world as they prepare for virtually any career.
*Some of these occupations may require additional education at graduate or professional schools.
Nearly all graduates of the program since 1990 have obtained jobs related to their course of study or admission into further graduate study
