Sherrie Sanders, Administrative Specialist
Welcome to the Department of History. The City of New Orleans serves as a stimulating laboratory for historical research, and studying history in America’s most interesting city provides challenges and rewards. Its culture, politics, position as an international port, and distinctive colonial history make New Orleans an exciting choice for the study of local, national, or international history. Our students are drawn from the region, and across the country and the globe.
The Department of History offers bachelor of arts and master of arts degrees. The department also offers urban history as a major or minor field of specialization for a doctor of philosophy degree in urban studies, a degree program administered by the Department of Planning and Urban Studies.
The undergraduate curriculum offers considerable flexibility in elective courses to structure an education that meets students' interests and needs. Advisors assist majors in choosing courses and electives that prepare them for such postgraduate programs as law, urban studies and regional planning, business, archival and library studies, and certification for teaching, among many.
The department is supported by three research centers: Center Austria, the Midlo Center for New Orleans Studies, and the Eisenhower Center. Through its Centers, the department circulates knowledge through the university to the community and abroad.
The Department of History at the University of New Orleans offers the opportunity for students to attain a solid preparation for life, from highly able professors, in a great city, for a reasonable price. We invite you to join us!
