sinä can be omitted

Opiskeletko historiaa should be accepted too.

You can also say "opiskeletteko te historiaa" where "te" is a plural form of "you" and it is the more official and courteous way of addressing people which is rarely used in spoken language. In everyday Finnish, "sinä" ot "you" can be omitted as well.

Why isn't historiata the partitive form of historia?

"Historiata" is from a regional dialect, I forget which one. The actual partitive is "historiaa"
