A major in History at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga requires 39 credit hours of course work; a minor requires 18 credit hours.

The department’s faculty offer courses in American, European, Asian, African, Middle Eastern, and Latin American history. In all these courses, students will learn about particular historical subjects and their significance, and they will master skills that will allow them to succeed in any career they choose. 

These skills include critical thinking and analysis, written and verbal communication, cultural understanding, and a global perspective, which will help students become thoughtful and well-informed citizens and will prepare them for life and work in an increasingly globalized world. History is a liberal-arts discipline that prepares students for success in a wide range of fields, including education, business, international relations, public service, law, technology, library science, and historic preservation.


The Department of History promotes excellence in teaching, scholarship, and research. Our mission is to ensure that our students engage critically with and understand historical events. We expose students to a broad range of historical periods and geographical areas and introduce them to a wide variety of primary and secondary historical sources. Students learn to formulate and advance arguments based upon research and, in so doing, acquire essential research, writing, and problem-solving skills.
