Welcome to the Department of History at UNC Charlotte. Historians are analysts of time, place, and circumstance. Regardless if you plan to teach History/Social Studies in high school, work in archives or museums, or plan a career in government, law, international organizations, the military, business, or other affiliated fields, the skills you learn as a historian find widespread application in many professions. Studying history is varied and fun. Our department offers students a range of programs and courses that explore the fascinating and complex history of human society while helping them develop the crucial analytic and communications skills needed for success in a wide range of careers.
The undergraduate major and minor in History seek to broaden and deepen a student’s understanding of the past and present from a multi-cultural perspective. Besides gaining a thorough background in the major fields of history, students may elect to take a wide variety of European, American, and non-Western surveys and specialized topics courses. Many of our majors also pursue teacher licensure certification and take advantage of specialized courses designed for future classroom teachers. The department encourages student efforts to study abroad and has an internship program for those interested in developing their practical skills or working as a research assistant for faculty members. History also has an active departmental honors program and a chapter of the national Phi Alpha Theta honor society, and it annually awards several Davenport academic scholarships and the Patterson prize for best student papers.
The graduate program offers training of the highest quality as students work closely with recognized experts in many different fields. Graduate students can obtain an M.A. in History or an M.A. in History with a Public History concentration. The Public History concentration has a New Media focus, preparing students for careers in a wide range of applied history fields. Graduate stipends are available to qualified candidates on a competitive basis. There is an active Graduate History Association which hosts an annual Graduate History Forum, an academic conference for graduate students.
