Current Students

History offers tools for addressing the most enduring questions of politics, economy, society, and culture. Firm grounding in History enhances our majors’ studies in fields across the university and deepens their engagement with the places and peoples of the world at large. Through solid advising, substantive teaching, and encouraging students to extend their learning beyond the classroom, the major helps students forge a path that will keep them learning and innovating for a lifetime.
