The Department of History at the University of Montana offers undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to learn about key areas of American, European, and world history from professors active in research who love to teach! We help students ask and answer critical historical questions about the local, national, and global worlds of which we are all a part.
Understanding the forces of change that shape society's institutions, values, and culture provides an important foundation for engaged citizenship and global leadership. Our students also gain valuable job skills through their training in critical thinking, historical research, and persuasive oral and written communication.
Graduate students in our masters and doctoral programs engage with classic and cutting-edge scholarship and develop thesis and dissertation projects that make original contributions to historical knowledge.
