Overview of Program
History majors acquire a breadth of historical knowledge and depth in a limited area, as well as the tools needed to prepare students for graduate study, law school, and life-long learning. A geopolitical focus characterizes this program of study. The program structure encourages students to double major either within the social sciences or in other fields, including other liberal arts and business.
Prestigious internship opportunities with local and state government agencies provide valuable field-work experience in the discipline.
Opportunities are available to present student research at state, regional, and national meetings.
Students work with experienced and engaged Ph.D. faculty who are published authors and have traveled widely and taught abroad.
Students must gain general admission to the University of Charleston.
