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.
