It’s true that most people who study history do not become historians. More often than not they become business professionals, politicians, and teachers. We live in the present and are constantly thinking about the future. What can the past teach us?
 An understanding of how society has evolved over time and how people have changed their environment is important to better prepare ourselves for  the future. Through studying practices of past cultures people gain a valuable perspective which can help them in any field of the workforce. In studying history you learn writing, speaking and analytical thinking skills  that many employers specifically seek. Learn how the past applies to the present and your future will be brighter.
