To study history is to explore the powerful interaction between the past and the present—and to cultivate the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind essential for active global citizenship.
Why study history with us?
A deeply engaging education…
Thrive in small courses taught by expert and enthusiastic faculty. Investigate global topics and understand diverse perspectives. Learn to rigorously question, research, analyze, discuss, and advocate.
…that extends beyond the classroom…
Complete an internship, study abroad, or undertake independent research. Present at a conference, publish in a journal, or aspire to join an honor society. Experience a sense of community and pride through events, trips, and workshops.
…to prepare you for the future.
Enjoy individualized advising and career-oriented events aimed at post-graduation success. Get to know, and then join, Ursinus History alumni, who enjoy graduate degrees and successful careers in a wide range of fields.
“The past is never dead.
It’s not even past.”
