About the Department:

The History Department is a diverse group of
scholars covering many areas of specialization. We pride ourselves on outstanding teaching. We offer small classes that allow a great deal of individual attention. In addition, our faculty advisers offer close contact and personal attention to each student. The History major is a place to get a “small college” education in a big state university.

The department of thirty professors has about two hundred fifty majors in three undergraduate programs—the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Arts with a Teacher Education Concentration, and the Bachelor of Sciences. All programs offer a great deal of student choice in courses and electives, allowing the pursuit of either a broad educational experience or a focused study.

Our 80 student graduate program offers two distinct degrees: the M.A. in History and the M.A. in Public History. However, both degree programs require a strong foundation in traditional history.
