“The Role of the History Major in Liberal Education” Report Turned into a AHA Pamphlet

The National History Center partnered with the American Historical Association to publish its report for the Teagle Foundation on “The Role of the History Major in Liberal Education” into a pamphlet for the AHA.

The pamphlet, entitled The History Major and Undergraduate Liberal Education, is the report prepared by the National History Center’s working group headed by Stanley N. Katz (Princeton University) and James R. Grossman (The Newberry Library).  The pamphlet urges history departments to reassess their curriculum for history majors, with an eye towards emphasizing the goals and values of liberal education.  A history major, the report argues, should “nurture [students'] liberal and civic capacities, in part by integrating disciplinary knowledge, methods, and principles into the broad experience of undergraduate education.”

It is available for purchase at the American Historical Association’s Pub Shop.
