President Harry S. Truman once said that the only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know. History majors study the past to better understand and appreciate the present. The study of history also teaches us how to write and present an effective argument, think critically and analyze ideas in creative ways.

Overview

At UNC, you’ll experience history through hands-on learning opportunities, including individual research projects, internships and study abroad programs. Our award-winning History program was twice designated a Center of Excellence, and our faculty have won the University Awards for Excellence in Teaching and in Scholarship. UNC History students also consistently win outstanding research awards at the college and university levels.

Prepare to teach at the middle and secondary levels. With an emphasis in history and social science, the Secondary Teaching emphasis offers valuable student teaching and field experiences through the UNC partner school program.
