The History Department at North Carolina State University is a diverse group of scholars covering many areas of specialization. All our tenure-track faculty are active researchers who publish books and articles, and many have been awarded numerous prizes and fellowships. We also pride ourselves on outstanding teaching. We offer small classes that allow a great deal of individual attention. In addi...tion, our faculty advisers offer close contact and personal attention to each student. The History major is a place to get a “small college” education in a big state university.
The department of twenty- seven tenure-track professors has about two hundred fifty majors in three undergraduate programs—the Bachelor of Arts, the Bachelor of Arts with a Teacher Education Concentration, and the Bachelor of Sciences. All programs offer a great deal of student choice in courses and electives, allowing the pursuit of either a broad educational experience or a focused program of study. Our 80 student graduate program offers three distinct degrees: the Ph.D, in Public History, the M.A. in History and the M.A. in Public History. All graduate degree programs require a strong foundation in traditional history.
