Description

The Bachelor of Arts in History is designed to provide the intellectual breadth and the analytical skills that allow students to make meaningful connections between the past and the present.

To that end, history majors are encouraged to interpret and question the cultural, social, economic and political factors that shape the ways in which individuals, societies, and cultures change over time. History faculty help students develop the skills of historical analysis, critical reading and writing, and research through a combination of lecture courses and limited enrollment seminars.

Building on the University’s identity and mission as an international American liberal arts college in Italy, the core program focuses on the national and regional histories of the United States, Italy, Europe, and the Mediterranean, while a course on the history of globalization introduces students to the tools needed to understand cross-cultural and interregional interactions. Through their choice of major electives, history majors can then focus their studies on the areas, eras, or types of history that interest them most.
