History requires active inquiry into the human past. By delving into the past, students of the History program of Earlham College gain a better understanding of the present, training them for citizenship and for a life of thoughtful action.


Students in the History program of Earlham College are passionate about history! Students on the editorial board of the Earlham Historical Journal select examples of outstanding student research for publication in this student-run academic journal.

The Department offers month-long experiences that first-year students participate in, including one that takes students to the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. to conduct original primary source research.

Reflecting the vitality and variety of courses at Earlham's History Department, "Anti-Slavery Movement in Indiana," "Contemporary China and the World," "History of Modern Turkey and Iran," and "The History of Popular Culture" have been recently added to the curriculum.


Three of our History majors recently received Fulbright Grants to spend a year abroad teaching English and conducting research in Thailand, Austria and France.

Earlham's History Major prepares students for a variety of careers. The American Historical Association ranks Earlham 16th in the country for production of future Ph.D.s.

Our majors pursue graduate school for degrees in fields as diverse as History, Museum Studies, teaching, law and public health.

Recent graduates have made successful careers as educators, in archival, library or museum settings or in public history. Many use history to prepare themselves for careers in business, law, management, medicine, politics, foreign service, publishing, political advocacy, ministry, law enforcement and public service.
