About

The faculty of the History program at Rutgers University and NJIT are joined in a single federated department that offers an integrated curriculum.

Overview

How You Will Learn

The mission of the History program at Rutgers University is twofold: to introduce students to the breadth and depth of the human experience by a comparative study of past and contemporary societies and cultures, and to develop their ability to conduct research, analyze and assess evidence, and articulate sound conclusions both orally and in writing.

The Department is also committed to a curriculum that explores the diversity resulting from such factors as ethnic, social, and gender differences. All our students thus acquire knowledge and skills that help them develop as informed, engaged, and thoughtful citizens. The study of history plays therefore a distinctive and central role in any strong liberal arts curriculum. History majors in particular will be prepared to pursue successful careers as teachers, academics, lawyers, civil servants, journalists, and of course historians in private or public agencies.

The mission of all our graduate programs is to prepare students to engage in the most rigorous historical inquiry and debate. All our students learn how to design and conduct archival research and hone their skills in responding to historiographical debate in both academic and public contexts. MAT students also pursue skills that will translate into pedagogical success in the classroom.
