The History program at Morehouse College is designed to develop within students a broad base of knowledge of world history that enables them to see and understand diverse people in a variety of historical contexts. 


Particular emphasis is placed on offering courses that facilitate students’ acquisition of knowledge about the history of Black people. The history program prepares students to investigate the human past and hone their skills in analysis and argumentation through the study of primary sources and critical reading of the theoretical debates among historians.

The programme

Students have the opportunity to conduct research with faculty as well as independent projects informed by diverse, holistic, and culturally sensitive theories and methodologies. The program pushes students to refine their written and verbal communication skills as well as develop expertise in the use of technology to create digital humanities tools and products. The Morehouse emphasis on character development and leadership is aided by courses on the history of the civil rights and human rights movements.

Our program provides instruction, research, internships, counseling, and extracurricular activities that offer students greater understanding of the world.

The History program at Morehouse College prepares students for graduate study and law school as well as for careers in public history, historic preservation, government, the ministry, business, teaching, public advocacy, media commentary, and social analysis.

Programme Structure

  • Thematically, the Department focuses on the areas of social justice, leadership, and globalization. At the heart of the Department's work will be helping students think historically and helping them develop their reading, writing, and argumentative skills. 
  • To do this, the Department will create an engaged, research-based learning environment with the classroom as a center of informed dialogue about historical issues. With this as the hub, spokes will connect students to a large world of ideas and develop them into a generation of Morehouse Men prepared for the exciting yet uncertain challenges of the 21st century.
