The purpose of history is to provide a broad liberal arts education that addresses fundamental questions about the nature of humanity, of society, of past experiences and of the times in which we live. UNC Asheville History graduates use their training in numerous ways: half the majors have entered careers in business and education, while the remainder are employed in such fields as national and state government, law, medicine, banking, the military, the ministry, social service, law enforcement, graduate study and archival work. This partial list demonstrates the diversity of careers open to those trained in history.
