Our department offers history, one of the top-ten majors pursued at Elon University, as well as minors in history, geography and geographic information systems (GIS). Our faculty consists of scholar-mentors who work closely with students in the classroom, on research projects and through internships.
We are actively involved in Elon’s study abroad programs and interdisciplinary programs including American studies, African/African-American studies, Asian studies, classical studies, general studies, GIS, international studies, Latin American studies and women’s/gender studies. Our courses emphasize research, writing and critical thinking skills preparing students for a wide range of careers and graduate programs.
We encourage you to explore our Website or drop by Lindner Hall to learn more about our major and minors, faculty, scholarship, honor societies and other offerings, and to examine our interactive map showing the locations and activities of our alums.
