The Undergraduate Program in History
Welcome to the Fall 2014 semester!
The news this summer coming out of West Africa, the Middle East, Ukraine, and the American Midwest has brought home in striking ways the importance of understanding the historical context of the world around us. The History Department is poised to help you learn about diverse societies and cultures and the ways in which they have changed over time.
Whether you are new to the discipline of History or are on your way to graduating with honors in History, we have courses that are designed for you. This semester alone we invite you to study the history of medicine, science, sports, capitalism, imprisonment, slavery, genocide, the environment, empires, sex, and education. Our courses span the globe, covering five continents and countless countries, from antiquity to today's headlines. We invite you to explore our courses and the concentration.
