Understanding the past, and its patterns, enhances our ability to analyze the present and the future. By studying history, we gain a deep and rich understanding of the world and its development over time.
History gives you the cultural background to function effectively in contemporary society. In a globalizing world, history provides you with an in-depth knowledge of societies from the distant past to the contemporary era. It enables you to function as an informed citizen and leader, able to evaluate evidence and make clear, concise, and convincing arguments..
The study of history teaches thinking and writing skills that are critical in a wide range of professions, from law to business to medicine.

I love how the professors get you engaged in the class and in the subject by not only telling us how the mind works but also showing us through videos and demonstrations. I love SHC and everything about it, to me, it fits perfectly with what I was looking for in a college experience. I wouldn't change one thing.

What makes Spring Hill College unique is our size. With an average of 15 students in a class, we can spend a lot of time with them, developing relationships not just in class, but out of class. Our students also stand out because they really want to be here. They’re enthusiastic about learning. And that makes my job, as a professor, so much more impactful and meaningful.
