Welcome to the Department of History
The department offers undergraduate students both a major and a minor in History. Small class sizes and our accomplished faculty combine to create an environment ideal for intellectual exploration. A degree in history develops skills in analysis, scholarship, and writing that are valuable in many settings. Our graduates go on to pursue careers in a variety of fields including education, government, law, medicine, and science.
We offer an MA in History or in History and Museum Studies as well as individual courses to students earning a certificate in Museum Studies. The PhD program is offered with a focus on Modern South Asian History or Global History. Our graduate programs cultivate academic excellence, and prepare students for leading roles in education and research, as well as in the fields of business, administration and world affairs.
