The Department of History is a vibrant community of scholars with a keen interest in research, teaching, and public outreach. History students learn about the past and its relevance to the present, how to ask and answer complex questions, and how to communicate research results in oral and written forms. Department alumni are successfully engaged in a wide range of careers, well prepared by their time at Auburn to excel in an ever-changing world with the foundational knowledge and skills to interrogate past and present alike.
