The History Department at CU provided me with an engaging and rewarding educational experience. Faculty members are passionate and prepare students to think critically, globally, and with empathy.  

History students at the University of Colorado Boulder will take courses on the premodern and modern history of Asia, the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Europe, and the United States of America. Students have the chance to take courses that explore history through the thematic lenses of colonialism and decolonization, diplomacy, the environment, gender/sexuality, and pop culture. Students have the unique opportunity of studying human society from broad perspectives in courses like "Introduction to Global History" and "A Global History of World War II," while also having the opportunity to engage in focused thematic and chronological classes like "Epidemic Disease in U.S History" and "Islam in the Modern World." History students learn to think comparatively and gain the skills they need to understand historical change.
