HISTORY History teaches students to understand past cultures and societies and to be engaged citizens. History students at OSU-Tulsa learn persuasive writing and critical thinking to evaluate problems and questions from multiple perspectives. This degree plan is ideal for students seeking to continue to graduate or professional programs and can often allow a student to complete a second major or a minor without additional hours. Majoring in history gives students access to renowned faculty with an astounding range of expertise. Our established public history program features strengths in historic preservation, museum studies and digital history. Our Internship course gives hands-on experience and real-world connections, in art museums, oral history programs, historical archives and others.
