Program Description:

The Department of History offers a comprehensive program in Medieval and Renaissance, Modern European, Public, and United States History. As one of the first departments in the nation to offer doctorate and master’s degrees in Public History, we strive to meet the needs of today’s students. Graduates are prepared for careers in teaching and Public History, but they also have transferable skills that make them excellent candidates for careers in business, government, and cultural institutions. For more information please contact the Graduate Program Director, Dr. Suzanne Kaufman, here. * We offer a major field in 19th- and 20th-Century American History and a concentration in Urban, Social, and Cultural History. The concentration builds on the specializations of one of the largest concentrations of urbanists in a single hsitory department in the country. Faculty strengths in this area include urban history, the built environment, economic and working class history, the history of sexuality, and the history of popular culture and entertainment. * We offer a master's and doctorate degree in Public History. The department's Public History program is a nationally recognized program and one of the few that fully integrates Public History into the doctoral program. Located in one of the leading cultural, corporate, and governmental administrative centers in the country, Loyola offers its students access to a wide variety of internship and practicum opportunities. * We maintain a strong program in Medieval and Renaissance History, which covers the broad period c.400- c.1550. Department resources are enhanced by courses offered by the Newberry Library Consortium's Center for Renaissance Studies, of which Loyola is a founding member.
