Our mission is to teach history and historical methods that equip students to think critically and independently so they can engage constructively as citizens, leaders, and scholars in a diverse society and rapidly changing world. We have a diverse faculty who offer coursework in a wide range of geographical fields and time periods, from the classical world to the modern United States. Our faculty are committed to excellence in teaching, research, and serving the University and the wider community.
The History Department offers a B.A. degree in History (with an option of pursuing secondary level teaching preparation), a minor in History, and an M.A. degree in History that combines traditional graduate instruction with training in digital history. We have designed these degree offerings to increase students' historical knowledge and build crucial critical thinking, reading, and writing skills.
Historical study provides perspective, helping individuals to place their own lives, values, and world events in context, and to recognize the processes of change that have brought us to the present. Please explore our site and contact us if you have any questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
