Why Study History? Questionnaire

word cloud

The history major provides both a stepping stone towards dynamic careers in many industries and preparation for lifelong contribution to civic life. As part of an ongoing effort to advocate for the BA in history and highlight the value of historical thinking, the AHA invites responses to the "Why Study History?" questionnaire. 

Since 2016, the AHA has collected hundreds of responses to the "Why Study History" questionnaire, many of which are shared here. If you are interested in administering this survey to find out what your undergraduate history alumni are doing now, you may share this survey and request that the AHA share responses from your alumni. Alternatively, please feel free to contact Julia Brookins (jbrookins@historians.org) for a template of this survey. 

Please contact Julia Brookins, AHA Special Projects Coordinator, with any questions about the questionnaire.
