Undergraduate Study of History

The Department of History encourages active engagement in historical inquiry: requiring students to learn how to master basic knowledge, ask historical questions, access and evaluate information, and communicate what they have learned in both written and oral forms. Helping students master the use of a variety of sources and tools to unlock the past is a goal of all our courses.

The Department of History offers a variety of degree options for undergraduates interested in the study of history: the major, several minor options, a departmental honors option for majors who qualify and additional resources.
