There are many great history departments throughout the country. What makes the Department of History at The University of Southern Mississippi unique is the breadth of our course offerings, our nationally recognized programs, and our committed faculty. We are big enough to offer quality programs, yet personal enough to give both undergraduate and graduate students individual attention. It is a great place to learn.
The Department of History's faculty include award-winning authors and teachers -- nationally acknowledged experts in their fields. Students in the Department of History have the opportunity to explore the histories of North America (with a special emphasis on the American South), Africa, and Europe. We are a leading institution for the study of war and society, are a regional leader in preparing students to teach history, and have an excellent oral history center with outstanding collections on the civil rights movement and other topics.
We offer bachelors, masters, and doctoral degree programs. Undergraduate students may choose either a traditional history degree, a history degree with teaching licensure in social studies, or a degree in international studies.
