Students and Faculty in the History Department are curious and creative. We ask big questions about the past to understand the present and build our future. Passionate about our research and committed to scholarship in the public interest, we partner with museums, archives, schools, and community organizations to share and develop new knowledge and to provide hands on internship opportunities for students.

Our Mission:

Advancing historical knowledge, cultivating globally aware citizens, and enriching communities through research, education and public engagement.
