  1. I’m on Collegeboard and it’s asking me how many years of Social Studies I’ve taken. I’ve always thought that social studies was the same as History, but it also asks me how many years of History I’ve taken. I plan on taking two years of History (I’m a Sophomore) and I don’t know what they mean. The college I want to go to (UNC at Chapel Hill) doesn’t require history, but they require three years of social studies. Would my two years in History (World History and US History) count as social studies?

    Are Social Studies and History both the same? If not how would I fufill their requirements?

  2. Traditional history and revisionist history. I’m confused on what each one is. I understand that revisionist history is when a scholar or a professor gives there view point and opinion on a historical event (or so I believe) but what is traditional history? Is that the bias history that one learns during childhood saying that George Washington is the greatest president of all time and things like that?

    I graduated with a bachelor’s in nursing, and had been planning on doing medical school, but the medical field has never been my true passion, history is. I’ve decided to go on a different path, but I’m not sure how to transition into the history field. I’ve been thinking of getting a Master’s in History, and I’m currently working on getting a teaching license. Am I going about it the right way? Also how much should I expect to make if I want to be a history professor, in either a small college or a university?

  6. How are history classes good to take? At my high school you need world history, government, ecconomics, and american history to be able to gratudate. What good is it to take american history and world history. Many other schools around here don’t even offer world history here. What kinds of fields can you go into by taking history? There is lots of things you can do with English, math and science but what good does history do? What kinds of jobs can you get from taking lots of history classes in high school?

  7. I really enjoy history and would love to have a more scholarly career. However, it bothers me that a job history doesn’t really imply a shaping and changing of the future, while I would like to have a more meaningful effect in working towards positive change.

(I am also not so much interested in studying activism)

  11. If I can choose which era in rock history so that I could start my rock career, I would have belonged in the British Invasion period of the 1960s when bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who gained popularity. Being the John Lennon/Mick Jagger/Roger Daltrey type of leader of the group, I would shape rock history with concept albums, psychedelia, and rebellious music.

    What about you? When in rock history where you could start your rock career? Why?

    A recent question, and more to the point an answer to that question, has me wondering what folks consider to be history. Does a controversy, no matter if it’s political or something else, fit your view of history? Or to you is history just important dates and speeches?

    See, to me this contrevesy is still a part of history, in fact as I type this it becomes a part of history. History isn’t just important dates and speeches to me. It’s not just the major figures involved in those dates or giving those speeches. It’s everything that has happened or is currently happening. But it’s broken down into the present, recent history, not so recent history, distant history, ancient history, and prehistoric history. Present history are things that are currently happening to within the last few days all others are covered in terms of days and years.

    What is history to you?

  13. I really enjoy history and would love to have a more scholarly career.

  14. Consider the term “objectivity,” supposedly the hallmark of good history. But can history ever be truly objective? Even the very act of analyzing history presents a bias about what the reader should focus on.
    If one were to write a passage on the “Arab Spring”, wouldn’t he be suggesting to readers that the Arab Spring matters, and is important to history, and the things that he has not written about do not matter?

    More broadly, is the study of history intrinsically linked to the opinions of its historians? Therefore, is it useless to attempt to present facts in a nonpartisan, politically correct, impersonal fashion?
