History majors study why and how cultures have changed over the centuries—and how that change has shaped the contours of today’s society.

Coursework covers the intensive study of history from every region of the world—Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe—as well as U.S. history. History majors have completed internships at the Smithsonian, the New York State Museum, WMHT Public Television, the National Park Service, the Holocaust Museum, and many other historic sites.
