A major in history is intellectually rewarding: it stimulates cultural awareness and enlarges and refines personal perceptions of the cultural conditions of human existence.

Departmental offerings are as varied as the diverse interests of history faculty members and include nearly all major areas and periods of historical study. Specialists in political, social, economic, intellectual, religious, constitutional, military, and legal history offer courses in these fields.

Our students and faculty spend countless hours delving into their research topics to produce publications and research data.
