The Department of History and Classics is pleased to offer our History Majors and Minors new, thematic Concentrations to further enhance and strengthen the learning experience in our program.  These informal Concentrations will allow students to focus on thematic issues they care most about, whether it’s Race and Ethnicity, Colonialism and Empire, Politics, or any of the other Concentrations that we now offer.  

Please note that, as informal Concentrations, they will not appear on students’ transcripts, and do not require any form submissions or degree changes.  Students should consult with their advisor about the best courses to fulfill the Concentrations, as well as the most effective way to articulate them on resumes, cover letters, job and graduate school applications, etc.   

The potential Concentrations are listed below, and students can also feel free to design their own.  Just reach out to your advisor for guidance, and see the Concentration opportunities below.
