World History

The history department invites majors and non-majors to study the history of various regions of the world with our nationally and internationally acclaimed research faculty. In addition to our foundational world history course, we offer a range of courses in comparative and transnational history, as well as courses that focus on a particular country or region of the world. By studying the history of one or more of these regions, students gain a better understanding of historical processes that transcend national boundaries and of the historical roots of contemporary interactions among diverse global cultures.
