Welcome to the Department of History


The Department of History encourages its students to become critical thinkers, clear writers, and historically aware, empathetic global citizens. Combining the particular resources and challenges of Philadelphia with a diverse and dynamic curriculum and faculty, the department seeks to develop a sense of enthusiasm and responsibility in its students. We welcome you as you choose to follow your dream of uncovering the past and all it offers.
