Department of History
From double majors to doctorates, the Department of History at Saint Louis University teaches students the values and skills of the liberal arts to prepare them for whatever career they choose.
Our undergraduates have a keen talent for science, technology, math and languages, but they also want to graduate with a deep cultural context about the global world. Our talented graduate students are committed to becoming experts in their areas, whether in the United States., Africa, Asia, the Middle East or Europe. Our medieval history program is one of the most successful Ph.D. programs nationally. All our students work with a team of distinguished faculty, whose research intersects with some of the most interesting topics in the news: from religious identity to immigration.
At every level, our students leave with skills that open doors to employment. There are Saint Louis University history graduates in the public and private sector — from Google to the Pentagon.
