The IPFW Department of History is a community of scholars who seek to understand the past and strive to introduce students to the process of historical thinking. The skills learned within the department prepare students for professional and vocational opportunities in a variety of fields and also enable them to be life-long learners. In addition, a major in History helps them to become thoughtful and effective citizens of an increasingly interconnected world.
