Undergraduate Program in History

Because the past is as expansive as the world itself, no field is more diverse than history. From society and culture, to politics and religion, it encompasses every dimension of human interaction.

Students of history study individuals, groups, communities and nations from every imaginable perspective, and apply various analytical techniques to raise questions and think critically about the past. The study of history helps put our own modern world into perspective.

History study the past

The undergraduate program at UC Davis has 33 faculty members offering courses in seven broad fields of concentration: Africa, Asia, Middle East, Europe, Latin America, United States and World. Within these fields students have the opportunity to focus on more specific topics and tailor their studies to meet their particular interest.
