How Will HTS Prepare Me?

Today's elite college graduates can be certain of three things:

  • they must be ready to engage a globalizing world;
  • they must be technologically literate and prepared to ride the inevitable waves of future innovation; and above all,
  • they must be able to use information effectively when they enter the workforce and across a lifetime.

This matrix demonstrates how the HTS major and other School of History and Sociology (HSOC) programs prepare students to make a difference by gathering, processing, and acting upon information in three context areas. 

No matter what your passion, HSOC will cultivate broad-based skills and help you prepare to make a difference.
