The Department of History at Marshall University is a growing, active department of fourteen full-time faculty. Each semester we offer more than 70 courses (including more than a dozen fully online), which meet the needs of over 2000 students per year. Currently, the department serves about 125 undergraduate majors and 25 MA students. We welcome and encourage student interaction, emphasize reading, writing, and critical analysis skills, and promote chronological, cultural, and geographic diversity. Our alumni are employed in a variety of fields from law to city planner and serve on the faculty of History Departments across the United States.

 

Our undergraduates engage in active research projects.  The  Carter G. Woodson Project Web Site highlights one such project.
