A study of history helps us understand how past events influenced what we are today. Learn from the past to create a brighter future.
The History Department offers a broad and diverse program of historical study that emphasizes the value of historical thinking. In the classroom, you will study everything from ancient Egypt to the Soviet Union. Many classes include experiential learning that takes students into the community for hands-on experiences or that challenges students to role-play major events in history. Outside the classroom, you'll meet nationally known historians through the department's Strickland Scholars program and can study abroad on faculty-led programs to Scotland, Senegal, Vietnam, and other locales. You will also have access to a range of scholarships available only to History majors at MTSU.
MTSU graduates are hired by universities and school systems, historic sites, state agencies, private consulting firms, historical agencies, historic preservation organizations, exhibit design firms, Main Street programs, museums, archives, and planning commissions throughout the nation. Public historians work in a wide range of professional settings with public audiences of all ages.
