During the History course from Otterbein University students gain a deepening awareness and curiosity about the past, acquire the essentials of the historian’s craft, and develop a sense of historical connection with the wider world.


Historians explore the processes of change that cross societies, connect cultures, and link our increasingly complex and global present with the past. By offering a range of courses covering the diversity of historical experience across the globe and from ancient times to the dawn of our own century, our curriculum presents a rich field of narrative and analysis.

By exploring narratives and analyzing patterns of change, students of the History course from Otterbein University will develop the skills of critical thinkers and writers: the independent identification and interpretation of sources, the construction of meaningful arguments, and the clear explanation and compelling expression of evidence and ideas.

The Department of History and Political Science offers a major and minor in History, as well as an Integrated Social Studies Teacher Licensure (grades 7-12).
