History is the science concerned with finding, gathering, structuring and passing on facts about events in the past. It aims at objectively establishing a cause-effect explanation of events in a chronological, complete and truthful manner.
The study of history helps us understand why the human society is the way it is today, why there are differences between societies and how people and society have evolved over time. A good understanding of the past leads to better decisions in the present and better planning for the future. Although History is regarded as a descriptive science of the past, it has great impact on the present.
A student of this discipline will learn how to assess evidence of various types, how to interpret conflict in an objective, based manner and how to assess and explain past changes. This discipline of studies offers a broad perspective that offers flexibility, good analytical skills, good writing and speaking skills, capacity to identify, assess and explain trends and behaviours and great research skills. All these attributes are vital in a number of different occupations in the job market, so a graduate of history has a wide range of jobs that he or she could be fit for.
