Our student-centered department of teacher-scholars strives to advance, integrate, apply and transform scholarship through teaching, research, publishing and community service. We use our creativity, commitment, skills and energy to enhance the ability of students, community members and professional colleagues from many different backgrounds to contribute (as citizens, workers and lifelong learners) to a diverse global community.
Majors and Programs
The History major exposes you first to broad historical surveys of peoples, nations and empires around the world, then to more specialized course work on one region or theme. A minor in History complements many other fields. History courses figure prominently in other majors, such as American Studies, Women's Studies and Global and International Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; and the Social Studies and History concentrates for Adolescence Education and Childhood Education majors. Students who major in History usually have opportunities to take a larger number of electives in other fields that might be relevant to their career goals or interests.
We offer a master's in History and courses for students in other graduate programs. The master's in arts in History provides students with knowledge of history and training in historical research for a variety of careers including teaching at the community college or high school level, law, public and government service, publishing, museum work, law enforcement, diplomacy, research and many others. The program also prepares students for doctoral programs in history.
Opportunities and advantages for studying history here include:
You’ll work with great teachers. The faculty includes widely published scholars, Distinguished Teaching Professor Geraldine Forbes, and other seasoned historians. Contact our faculty for more information.
You’ll get experience. Courses stress disciplined methods of inquiry and interpretation, as well as empathy and imagination. The challenge of understanding other peoples, places and times enriches all who embrace it and provides students with a background suitable for many kinds of history-related careers. You can even study abroad, combine studies with American Studies, Global and International Studies, Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Women's Studies, Native American Studies, or become a social studies teacher.
You’ll be ready for your next step. With great faculty, advising, interdisciplinary programs, overseas and internship opportunities, you’ll be well prepared for your future.
Our prolific faculty have contributed to recent scholarship, including recent books by Frank Byrne on the post-Civil War South and the merchant class, Gwen Kay on how toxins meant women used to die to become beautiful and Mary McCune on the political involvement of American Jewish women.
Because of our program's strong foundations and encouragement of a broad-based worldview, graduates work in a wide variety of fields including teaching history on all educational levels, serving as executive directors and curators of museums and historical societies, and sharing knowledge as librarians. Graduates work as lawyers and in law enforcement, government agencies, management and many other fields. Many go on to top graduate schools to pursue advanced degrees.
You might even follow in the footsteps of accomplished alumni like Reverend Doctor E. Catherine Salisbury, recipient of her MSED in 1973, history teacher, minister and author at 88. Or Dr. James G. Patterson, now Centenary College vice president for academic affairs and chief academic officer. Or perhaps you’ll be ready to blaze a new trail.
