Welcome to the Department of History

We invite you to get to know our faculty, share some of our student success stories, and learn about our ongoing projects and programs.  We are proud of what goes on in our department and across our curriculum as we teach, research, and write about the history of just about everywhere. See our video here!

The History Department is pleased to announce that the M.A. program for professional history educators (ONLINE) applications for admission in the Fall 2020 semester open February 1, 2020. Applications will be reviewed as they are received. There are a limited number of spaces, and we expect the program to fill up quickly, so those interested in applying are encouraged to do so soon! In the event that spaces remain in the program new applications will be entertained until July 1, 2020.
