About the History and Geography Department
We pride ourselves on being a teaching-focused institution with scholars who also contribute publications in their specific field of history. Our faculty offers a diverse range in courses.
The department’s most popular track is the Social Studies Secondary Education concentration. The program is highly valued because of its balanced combination of content, pedagogy, and high job placement level.
We are also proud to be among a small list of history departments throughout the country to have a Public History concentration for undergraduate students.
