Chatham University History

The history program offers courses in the history of regions and major topics in world history as well as skills and project-based courses. These courses provide students with a grounding in the many ways historians have made sense of the world. Understanding how diverse societies, economies, states, and cultures have changed and developed over time is crucial to evaluating and adapting to today's ever-changing world. Throughout their course work, students learn to acquire, organize, analyze, and clearly communicate information and present complex histories to the public in a variety of formats.

The teacher certification program offers certification in secondary social studies teaching. Students interested in this program should see the Certification Coordinator in the Education program for specific requirements.
