    Welcome to the Department of History!

    The Department of History prides itself on providing students with rigorous training in writing, research, and analytical thinking. The history major offers students three 36-credit tracks in history, public history, or secondary education, as well as a variety of minor programs. The Department produces more social studies teachers every year than any other campus in the UW system, and the public history program is the only such program in Wisconsin. As a result, students are extremely well prepared for the work and life challenges of the 21st century.
