We are comprised of a team of internationally recognized scholars committed to providing students with knowledge and skills necessary for success in many professions. As professional historians, we routinely present and publish works for both academic and popular audiences. As professors, we help students understand how the events of the past, the reality of today, and the direction of the future inseparably connect.

Beyond the classroom, our majors have many opportunities for student research in our own and nearby research libraries. We also help facilitate internships in local museums. There are also numerous other learning opportunities outside the classroom with Phi Alpha Theta, the history honor society, as well as combined lectures, activities, and conferences with the Gender and Ethnic Studies programs.
