Department of History
Study History at OSU
Our courses give students a broad understanding of the evolution of civilizations, peoples, countries, and institutions. The department's instruction is designed to aid students interested in education, law, journalism, business, public service, and even scientific and technical disciplines.
Our graduate program offers an M.A., Ph.D., and a graduate certificate in Museum and Curatorial Studies for students interested in pursuing advanced study in a wide range of historical fields.
Specialized training in Public History prepares students for careers in and outside of academia. Our graduates work at archives, museums, historical societies, and universities across the country.
