The history curriculum orders the study of the past in logical and meaningful ways. Beginning with surveys that offer general approaches to broad periods of history, students move on to upper division classes that challenge students to read and write about specific subjects and places in more depth. They finish their degrees by reading deeply, conducting archival research and writing major papers on specialized topics in seminar-style readings and research courses. Students interested in further developing their understanding of history can write senior theses or undertake internships at museums, archives and other public history sites.
