Graceland invites History students to study the past with an examination of multiple cultures in order to gain an appreciation of people with diverse backgrounds.

Students have opportunities to study the history of the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America, as well as explore world history as a whole through a robust curriculum. Based on the standards suggested by the American Historical Association, the program emphasizes the development of analytical skills for interpreting change and continuity, using and assessing historical documents, and evaluating different historical interpretations.

History is where humanities meet the social sciences. Graceland students benefit from top professors and small class sizes designed for maximum impact on the learning experience and are prepared for graduate-level studies.

Why Graceland

  • History majors have the opportunity for real-world experience with coursework that takes students through the process of presenting at a professional conference.
  • Graceland has an active History Club that makes periodic trips to area museums, as well as hosts campus events like movie nights and trivia challenges.
  • The history program is a great choice for anyone seeking careers related to research or analysis, as any of these jobs can be found in government service with agencies like the CIA, DEA, FBI, and Department of State.
“History encompasses a variety of subjects, regions, and eras. Although Graceland is a small university, the history department offers many subjects to study. Students are able to explore these different subjects and find one that suits their particular interest.”
