Department of History
Students of history at Stetson University learn how to reconstruct the past in order to better understand the present. History is about connections—between people, ideas, events, time periods, places, and even between academic disciplines. Through acquiring knowledge of the past, student-historians become aware of these links between human experiences and ways of thought across the centuries and across the globe.
The History Department at Stetson University offers courses that cover time periods from ancient to modern and regions around the globe. Students of history will learn about history first-hand through primary research, along with improving their critical reading, writing, and thinking skills. History offers hands-on experience in internships, teaching or research apprenticeships, or through the adventure of a travel course. The History major is a good fit with many other majors and minors, and many department courses also support the University’s interdisciplinary programs: American Studies, Africana Studies, East Asian Studies, Gender Studies, International Studies, Latin American Studies, and Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies.
