Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) was recently ranked by Learn.org for having one of the best online bachelor's history degree programs for 2020. 

This ranking was based on factors such as the program’s format, cost, and flexibility. 

SAGU’s bachelor’s in History covers deep subject areas in history and social studies including economic history, world civilizations, early America, Medieval history, and Modern history.

Through this degree, students will learn to:

  • Design accurate responses to hypothetical problems in historical scenarios
  • Explain points of comparison and contrast between different civilizations and societies
  • Identify, define, or explain significant ideas, facts, and concepts in American and world history
  • Assess the impact of policies and actions by people and governments

SAGU’s degree program will also provide a strong base of knowledge and equip undergraduate students for advanced research and expression in master’s level history studies. History majors gain valuable skills in research, writing, and analysis. These skills often lead to promising careers in education, public history, and preservation! 

According to the New York Federal Reserve Bank’s 2017 Labor Market study, history majors earn a mid-career median salary of $62,000 a year, which is roughly $25,000 higher than the national median salary reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

SAGU also offers a bachelor’s degree in Ancient Studies focusing on the investigation and analysis of thousands-of-year-old western and non-western civilizations. Students can explore thousands of years worth of nations, religions and philosophies as you consider history in the realm of biblical archaeology.
