As a history major or minor you will have the opportunity to take exciting courses, pursue independent research, and learn outside the classroom. Study abroad programs give you the chance to experience where the history you have been studying happened. An internship at an archive or museum allows you to see how sources are organized and historical knowledge made accessible to the public. You can also contribute to scholarly debate by publishing your research in the Chicago Journal of History. The history major at the University of Chicago provides a strong foundation to pursue graduate study in the field. Graduating students have been admitted to top MA and PhD programs in history and other disciplines, as well as professional schools, in the United States and abroad.
