The discipline of history is central to the liberal arts and a defining feature of the Jesuit intellectual tradition. Historical study at Saint Louis University, including SLU's history minor, grounds students in research, critical thinking and communication skills all while enhancing their cultural awareness.
Saint Louis University's history minor offers small classes and one-on-one mentoring while covering every time period and region of the globe. The history undergraduate program hosts a vibrant extracurricular calendar that helps students network, hone their skills and share their passions for history.
Whether you see yourself working in a lab, collaborating on a satellite, teaching students, or shaping public policy, the faculty in SLU's history department are here to help you develop into a global leader.
Students in history courses are guided by professors who are outstanding writers, engaging speakers and leading experts in their fields. Faculty members have written for The New York Times and Washington Post and have been interviewed on NPR and St. Louis Public Radio. History students work alongside award-winning teachers who are deeply committed to helping students grow as thinkers and, in the best of the Jesuit educational model, as human beings.
