  • Welcome to the History Department! Our program is one that is based in the past, yet brings forth the relevance of historical events to modern affairs. As a member of our department, you will access your ability to succeed and harness that success into sought-after professional skills.

  • Dr. Chazelle immersed in the mentoring of two exceptional students. Our faculty members are notably invested in the future of their students. Faculty work closely with their students to provide all necessary resources to ensure their success.

In smaller class sizes, you will have an enhanced form of study where you will build personal relationships, with faculty and students, giving you the advantage of creating a network while also delving further into content and extracting meaning.

  • Dr. Jo-Ann Gross and students stand in front of a series of sparkling turquoise lakes, Seven Lakes or Artuch, that stretch out through the Fann Mountains south of Penjikent in Tajikistan during a Study Abroad Maymester.

  • Students gather outside of Princeton Art Museum during an off campus learning experience with Dr. Paces. The department engages students not only through academia, but also through real world experiences to breathe life into the past.
