The Department of History

Our award-winning, global experts teach innovative courses on subjects that affect our world today. We attract students ready to work hand-in-hand with them on innovative research projects that challenge the field’s status quo.

From Civil War Washington to the History Harvest, our projects unite faculty, students, and the public to discover new ways to investigate, preserve, and present history. We believe that by digitizing history, we democratize it.

Our coursework and fascinating research opportunities enable both graduate and undergraduate students to develop strong critical thinking, strategic and analytical skills, as well as valuable, marketable experience. Our culture of mentorship and collaboration provides students support from from their first day on campus, to the day they stand in cap and gown, and throughout their career.

Do more than study history—make it.
