Chair's Message

Welcome to the Winthrop University History department. History is the study of past events, cultures, and societies. Historians realize that through the study of history we can not only analyze the development of societies and cultures throughout the world on both an individual and global level, but also unearth answers about the world that we live in today. Are you interested in studying change over time?

Are you interested in analyzing how past events have impacted present day societies? The study of history can help you answer these questions, and many more.

The History major is frequently chosen by students who wish to pursue careers in such fields as teaching, law, library and archival work and journalism, as well as in areas less directly related to the study of history, including fields in business and industry.

The history faculty at Winthrop University is comprised of scholarly, talented, energetic, and friendly individuals who are devoted to promoting the study of history and student learning.
