The History faculty strives to make outstanding scholarly contributions to the discipline and to instill historical knowledge, perspective on human experience, critical thinking skills, and effective writing in all our graduate and undergraduate students. We are also a community of citizens engaged in service and devoted to the enrichment of intellectual and public life at the University, throughout Utah, and beyond.

History is a record of the political, social, economic, and cultural events, lives, and achievements of humankind. Historians analyze and evaluate this record in an attempt to understand the past and interpret the present. The History Department offers comprehensiveness and breadth in the undergraduate program as well as possibilities for research specialization at the Masters and Doctoral levels.
