a student and an ancient painting

AUC’s history major covers a range of European, American and Middle Eastern topics, and allows students the flexibility to develop and pursue their own interests. All courses develop in students an appreciation of the richness, complexity, and diversity of past civilizations, allowing them to examine the human experience in its fullest dimensions.

The program as a whole gives students appropriate historical, academic and personal competencies, develops their intellectual sophistication, and provides a solid foundation for their future lives, preparing them for a wide variety of subsequent careers, from law or diplomacy to journalism or business.

Students interested in declaring History as their major must take at least two courses in History the year they join the major and pass an interview to be conducted by the Department Academic Advisor.
