History

The Department of History provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the historical forces that have shaped the world’s civilizations.  Studying history helps one to develop a critical perspective on the world and to understand how one’s own identity and culture relate to those of others.  The Department particularly prides itself on the diversity of its course offerings, its emphasis on faculty and student research, and the opportunities it offers for students to engage in internships and fellowships in the Memphis community.
