From VMI:

The history curriculum prepares cadets for careers in law, business, politics, government service, and the armed forces. With proper electives, the curriculum also meets the requirements for admission to law schools and graduate programs in business administration and management, and history.

History majors receive training in the natural sciences, mathematics, literature, and foreign language. History courses emphasize an understanding of developments and problems, and give attention to social, economic, cultural, political and constitutional problems.
