Department of History

Understand society’s past and train your mind for the future.


Students of history develop an understanding of the flow of human events. Along the way, they expand their ability to analyze, synthesize, and communicate — key skills in any endeavor.

Colgate’s curriculum is global in reach, and it encourages interdisciplinary exploration. Courses cover Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Latin America, and the interaction between these societies.
