Departments & Programs



The study of history prepares students to understand our changing world. Department of History (HIST) courses cover a wide range of issues in all time periods and parts of the world. History students learn how change takes place, the tensions and conflicts it causes, and how individuals, groups, and societies change over time. The history major develops skills that are essential for any career: research, analysis, synthesis, and effective writing.
