What is History and Literature?
History and Literature’s innovative and rigorous approach to interdisciplinary scholarship allows students the flexibility to design an individualized course of study. With their tutors, students explore cutting-edge research in the humanities, while learning how to shape research projects of their own. Each year the concentration sends graduates to careers in media, law, business, banking, consulting, medicine, government, public policy, the arts, and academia. History and Literature teaches skills invaluable to any profession: the craft of writing and the art of close and critical reading.
