The Department of History and American Studies and its faculty offer courses of study that lead to two majors, History and American Studies. In their study, students gain a rigorous preparation in research and writing, a strong set of skills necessary to analyzing and communicating ideas clearly and effectively, as well as training in digital fluencies for a twentieth century world. The Department is large enough to offer a wide range of courses, but small enough that students work directly with their professors. Both majors encourage the acquisition of a broad knowledge of history, curiosity about one’s place in time and space, and the ability to formulate ideas and arguments. To find out more about the department, visit the History and American Studies webpage.
