History is an exciting kind of detective work, finding and putting together pieces of a puzzle to enhance our understanding of the past, the present, and perhaps even the future.
History is one of the most vital and comprehensive subjects in the Occidental curriculum. Our department offers a broad diversity of courses and approaches covering every time period, and cultures from all over the globe.
Students will become familiar with intellectual, social, political, comparative and oral history, and may select from a wide spectrum of courses including such geographical areas as Latin America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europe, the United States, and such topical areas as Women’s History and the History of Science and Medicine. The faculty recognizes that students will develop their own perspective on the material presented, and welcomes close interaction with motivated and involved majors.
