Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the History Department at the University of Florida!

History at UF starts with a creative and dynamic faculty, a community scholars engaged in a broad range of scholarship and teaching. Visitors to this site will find much more information about the activities of our faculty, whose work reaches audiences in nearly every corner of the globe—and right here in Gainesville, Florida.

Our undergraduate program is home to a diverse and talented group of over 350 History majors. We are dedicated to providing a quality educational experience for all of our students. History majors have a number of ways of enhancing their undergraduate experience, including completing a senior thesis in conjunction with our recently established honors program, an internship, or participating in a study abroad program. We call your attention to our award-winning student-edited journal Alpata; both current and back issues can be found by following the links on our home page.

Our graduate program is currently home to roughly 75 Masters and Ph.D. students, working in a number of fields: African History, European History, Latin American History, and United States History. Graduates of our program have gone on to outstanding careers in the academy and beyond, and have published a great many scholarly articles and books. Prospective students interested in graduate study at UF will find a great deal of helpful information on this site! We hope you’ll take the time to explore what our program has to offer.

We are very proud of our students, past and present. History alumni are always welcome to write to me and share your experiences after graduating from UF. We look forward to hearing from you.
