"It's the past that tells us who we are. Without it we lose our identity." - Stephen Hawking

Learn how the past can help shape your future!

Our students learn about real people and events in history that will influence and change their lives today. You can choose specialized courses such as:

  • Public History
  • Archaeology
  • American Slavery
  • Military History
  • Ancient History

We offer a public history program, developed for students who are interested in careers in museums and other historical agencies, and also participate in the five-year Master of Arts in Teaching Program (MAT).

You will have the opportunity to participate in internship experiences at museums, archeological digs and government agencies.

Our mission is to act as a bridge to the humanities, the social sciences and the hard sciences.
