Department of History


About the Department

Studying History at Westminster College offers the best of both worlds: an elite college curriculum in a small, intimate atmosphere. The History curriculum is second to none, combining topical courses with advanced skills seminars that together prepare majors for a range of careers after graduation.

Our majors and minors learn a lot about the history of America, Europe, and the globe, but also how to read, write, think critically, and interpret primary sources at an advanced level. Additionally, at Westminster, you will have the opportunity to gain resume-worthy work experiences through internships and practicums. In short, our majors succeed because they graduate from a program designed to lead them to success.




Experiences & Opportunities

At Westminster, learning isn’t limited to the classroom. In each of our 50+ majors and pre-professional programs, your education will be enhanced by the purposeful combination of expert classroom instruction and hands-on learning opportunities. Internships, undergraduate research and studying abroad are just a few of the real experiences our students get that lead to real success after graduation.
