Department of History

    History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.  • Maya Angelou

    If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree. • Michael Crichton

    Knowledge and awareness of history and society are important ingredients of a liberal education. The Department of History offers general courses for all students, a major and a minor in history, and preparation for students who plan to continue study at the graduate level, to teach history, or to enter related fields.

    Our web site will introduce you to our faculty and staff, our courses, the requirements for a degree, and other information that can help you decide if you'd like to study history at USA. Please let us know if we can help by contacting us by phone or email.

    What is this view?

    You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of South Alabama site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
    This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
