About Us

Welcome to the University of Oregon Department of History!

We are scholars and teachers with a passion for understanding the past in all its dimensions. Our distinguished and innovative faculty offers courses and conducts research on the history of classical antiquity, Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, colonial North America and the United States, and the world as a whole.

Undergraduate history majors learn about the variety of human experience over time and, along the way, acquire analytical and writing skills that prepare them for success in many different 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. They play a vital role in the department’s teaching mission as well.

We invite you to browse our website and read about recent activities from the department. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
