If you want to help solve the world’s pressing societal challenges, you'll first need to understand their context. As a History major or minor, you'll compare societies across time and geography to gain insight into the diversity of the human experience and your own place in the world.

In this program, you’ll hone your investigation and information literacy skills by exploring and analyzing varied sources across a range of periods and developments in the Western and non-Western worlds.

Course topics include:

  • Developments in the Age of Discovery in the 15th century
  • Evolving relations between the United States and the Middle East
  • Life in the medieval era
  • Women’s history
  • Urbanism in American history

Your coursework will take place both inside and outside the classroom and will include research, collaboration with faculty, and hands-on fieldwork.

As a graduate, you'll be well prepared for graduate study or careers in government, non-profits, or the private sector, as well as for a lifetime of informed citizenship.
