The Baylor History program provides students with a vast array of historical studies. Students are able to focus on a variety of topics. Students not only learn the facts, but also gain the ability to critically analyze data and interpret its meaning for human lives. Available courses include:

  • Medieval Britain
  • Ancient Rome
  • Hitler and the Holocaust
  • Historiography and Philosophy of History
  • History of Medicine

History students might also be interested in pairing their major with a Museum Studies minor. The minor in Museum Studies provides students with other majors a solid introduction to the museum field, to different aspects of the museum profession, and to the study of artifacts of aesthetic or historic significance.

Baylor University's undergraduate scholarly publication, The Pulse, promotes academic writing among undergraduate students at Baylor. Students with exceptional writing and research are given the chance to have their work featured in the publication, whether for their classes or for their Honors or University Scholars theses. The Pulse also provides opportunities for students to gain experience in the publication process.

Studying abroad comes highly recommended to History majors. Visiting foreign countries and districts provides students with a deeper understanding of the topics at hand. For more information on all of Baylor University's study abroad opportunities, visit the Study Abroad webpage.

Graduates of the History program often continue their studies through graduate or law school. Some enter the workforce as teachers or public historians. Others find employment through various agencies of the government.
