UVM history students develop flexible minds and sophisticated world views.

The word "history," Greek in origin, means "learning through inquiry," and that is precisely what our professors of history and their students do. At UVM the study of history is much more than memorizing dates, names, battles and treaties. Together, students and faculty discover and interpret the past by asking questions and conducting research. In the process, students become prepared to meet the challenges of a constantly changing and increasingly complex world. Learn about studying history at UVM.

A community of scholars and teachers

Virtually every faculty member in our department has won or been nominated for one of the university's awards for excellence in teaching. We’re equally proud of the fact that we are a community of scholars involved in the active pursuit of historical understanding. Every member of the history faculty is a published author—as scholar-teachers we are committed to sharing our love of history and our search for historical insight with you.
