The European History program from Salve Regina University strives to increase students’ understanding of the past in order to give them a better perspective on the contemporary world.


With training in research, writing and analysis, the majors of the European History program at Salve Regina University are well prepared for graduate work as well as a variety of careers in such fields as education, government, museum studies and business.

Our Program

While we emphasize American and European history, students learn to appreciate our multicultural world through a variety of courses on non-Western regions. We encourage majors to immerse themselves in other cultures through study abroad programs in such diverse locations as Italy, Egypt, France and Senegal.

Closer to home, we take full advantage of our location in Newport, a leading seaport in the Colonial and Revolutionary eras and a favorite summer destination for the wealthy during the Gilded Age. From courses on the religious history of Newport to internship opportunities at historical societies, archives and museums, we offer unique, hands-on learning experiences in a living historical environment.

Students may also choose to double major in history and secondary education, which prepares them to apply for Rhode Island teacher certification for grades 7-12.
