Head of History

A recent study undertaken by Benjamin M. Schmidt, a professor of history at Northeastern University, revealed some fascinating changing trends in the study of history at the tertiary level. Schmidt’s study revealed that whilst history has been declining more rapidly than any other major in some American universities, in others, specifically Ivy League schools like Brown, Princeton, Yale and Columbia, it is dramatically increasing and has become the top declared major. In fact, history is growing so rapidly at Yale that “the Yale history department intends to hire more than a half-dozen faculty members this year alone.”[i] Schmidt locates the decline in some colleges to the 2008 global financial crisis where “students (and their parents) felt a need to pick a major in a field that might place them on a secure career path.”[ii]
