Innovations in History
Study the past. Thrive in the present. Prepare for the future.
In the A-State History Department, we are committed to helping all our students acquire broadly transferable skills in historical thinking, critical literacy, and self-expression. Our faculty maintain active research agendas and regularly present nationally and internationally. Students have opportunities to engage in high-impact educational experiences, not only in the classroom, but also through research projects, internships, and study abroad. The ability to think critically and creatively about past realities prepares students to do likewise about contemporary choices and future possibilities. Our programs prepare students to examine context and bias, create strong and persuasive narratives with evidence, and to be civically minded community members and strong investigative researchers.
