Who are we?: We are explorers, storytellers, educators, and activists who offer opportunities to engage with the forces that make us who we are as individuals and global citizens. Our goal is to provide students with foundations for fulfilling lives and careers of discovery and creativity.

Opportunities for our students: Regardless of where your interests lie, we invite you to engage with each other, faculty, and the community as we explore the critical issues of today and yesterday both in and out of the classroom. Gain valuable real-world experience through exciting courses, internships, independent research, and study abroad opportunities. Join us for lively debates, meaningful conversations, and informative talks. Leave the beaten path with a behind-the-scenes trip to a local museum or on one of our popular hidden-history tours. Get your hands dirty uncovering relics of the past at a local historical site. Hang out with us at a department picnic, ghost stories around the fire, or a 4th floor discussion. Whatever your interests, we have a place for you.

Our student honor society, Phi Alpha Theta, offers the chance to present your research at student conferences or have an article published in our annual journal, Perspectives in History, while our History Club offers students the chance to hang out with new friends who share common interests.

We proudly offer the following annual student awards: the W. Frank Steely Senior Award, H. Lew Wallace Junior History Award, Leon E. Boothe Community Service Award, Outstanding Geography Student, Outstanding Graduate Student in Public History, W. Frank Steely Travel Fellowship, Ed and Betty Foster Endowed Scholarship for History, Mark R. Herrmann History Scholarship, W. Frank Steely Endowed History Scholarship, W. Frank Steely and Martha J. Pelfrey Social Studies Scholarship, and the Macel Wheeler Scholarship.
