The Department of History at Rowan University delivers high quality instruction and advising to both undergraduate and graduate students. Our faculty produce nationally and internationally recognized research and possess chronologically and geographically diverse specialties in areas such as the ancient Mediterranean, early modern Europe, colonial Africa, colonial North America, the Middle East, Russia, the Far East, and the modern United States.
The undergraduate and graduate curricula incorporate the latest scholarship and technology but are based on the time-tested and enduring values of the liberal arts. Our faculty teach courses in a wide range of courses including histories of ancient Egypt, medieval Europe, imperialism and colonialism, the American Revolution and Early Republic, the American Civil War and Reconstruction, World War II, the Arab-Israeli Conflict, Women in American History, the 1960s, and more!
Many of our graduates go on to teaching social studies at public and independent schools in New Jersey, and we are proud of our network of successful alumni teachers in the region. Beyond teaching, there are a wide variety of career options open for history majors. In addition to attending law school and graduate school, recent graduates work in a diverse range of fields in both the private and public sectors, including finance, entertainment, and public history.
