Overview

History at Vanderbilt encompasses interests as boundless as the past we all share. Everything has a history --- from ethnic groups and environment, to nation-states and regions of the world, to entertainment and sexuality. Many undergraduates combine their interest in history with economics, foreign language, medicine, music, politics, psychology, or sociology. In addition to the standard history major, students can choose the newly created Law, History, and Society major. It is designed for those students who are particularly interested in how law and legal regimes worked in the past, and how they are connected to broader social, cultural, and economic patterns. It represents an excellent choice for those interested in legal careers.

Funding

We make three important commitments to U.S. Citizens and eligible non-citizens to ensure that students from many different economic circumstances can enroll at Vanderbilt:

  • First:  Since talent and promise recognize no social, cultural, economic, or geographic boundaries, our admissions process is need-blind for U.S. Citizens and eligible non-citizens. 
  • Second: Vanderbilt will meet 100% of a family’s demonstrated financial need. 
  • Third:  Financial aid awards do not include loans. Instead of offering need-based loans to undergraduate students, Vanderbilt offers additional grant assistance. This does not involve income bands or "cut-offs" that impact or limit eligibility.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
