Overview

We in the Fordham University History department embrace and explore our collective human past every day. It’s through the past that we understand the present—and chart a more insightful course for the future.

You will study the development of peoples and nations, their interrelations and interactions, and the events that have shaped the modern world. You will come to see yourselves and your society from different times and places. This informed perspective on the world will guide your thinking and career.

You learn how to analyze societies and peoples in context—a valuable asset for many professional careers that require broad social vision and global awareness.

What you will learn

You’ll learn more than history here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, economics, mathematics, languages, science, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
