About

History explores every aspect of the human experience — politics, economics, religion, social issues, and art. It's a discovery of our humanity and our complexity. History helps people think critically about the past, present, and future. The History program is offered by the Marquette University.

Overview

You will begin your History program at Marquette University with surveys that provide a global perspective on the past and then choose seven specialized courses on Western civilization or the U.S., European, Latin American, Asian or African history.

History majors have the chance to study the history and cultures of societies around the world in depth through small-group seminars, colloquia, and senior experience courses. All history majors complete individual research projects, and it's possible to write a senior thesis. 

You bet. As a Marquette history major, you'll gain valuable — and relevant — experience through internships with the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Milwaukee Public Museum, the Chudnow Museum, Marquette's Near West Side project, City Hall and Old World Wisconsin. Some internships include work in the digital humanities. Don't forget about the Les Aspin Center for Government's congressional internship program if you're looking to be a part of history as it's made on one of its brightest stages.
