Department of History

The History program at IUP is excellent preparation for students interested in teaching, government service, pre-law training, broad business opportunities, work in varied fields of journalism, archival positions, and for public history.

Many different courses and histories are taught, as the department believes that a global historical understanding is essential for the future of civilization.
