History (BA)

The history curriculum is designed to provide an understanding of the complex forces that have shaped the present and to assist in preparing for careers in business, law, politics, public service, journalism, or teaching.

Course offerings in history provide students with a strong background in U.S. and European History, and in the History of Western
Civilization. In addition, the department offers electives in African, Asian, Latin American, and Middle Eastern History. Our internship and experiential programs include opportunities to work at museums, historical associations, and historical sites in New Jersey.
