Department of History


The University of Oregon History Department is a group of scholars and teachers with a passion for understanding the past in all its dimensions and committed to conveying their scholarship to students, the public, and fellow historians. Our distinguished and innovative faculty includes award-winning and internationally-recognized scholars and teachers.

With twenty-seven full-time faculty and several participating and adjunct faculty, we offer courses in the history of the Ancient world, Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and colonial America and the United States. These courses cover a variety of themes, including cultural, economic, environmental, gender, intellectual, legal, medical, political, and social history. History majors learn about the variety of human experience over time and, in so doing, acquire analytical and writing skills that prepare them for success in numerous areas of work and study. History graduate students become immersed in the latest scholarship and develop research projects that contribute in significant ways to an understanding of the past. And they play a vital role in the department's teaching mission as well.
