Department of History
Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
At USF, we resist the idea that history is static or confined to the past. By examining current events within the context of historical events, students gain a deep understanding of how the past continues to inform present-day issues at both the local and global level. We encourage students to think critically about their place in the world to become active, globally engaged citizens.
Our major and minor curricula are designed by a diverse group of professors and offer a variety of courses in social, cultural, environmental, gender, economic, political, and religious history. With a commitment to diversity, courses cover not just the history of America and Europe, but Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East.
