UVU's History Program is dedicated to developing the twenty-first century student.
We provide the general student body a broad range of courses that increase global
awareness, engagement and informed citizenship, as well as develop critical thinking,
writing, and oral expression. In addition, History majors can choose from a large
number of in-depth upper division courses that further their content knowledge and
expand their abilities to critically analyze past and current events in a variety
of regions and nations. In all courses, students and faculty observe the human experience
by investigating the diverse historical perspectives of the past and present.
History faculty endeavor to teach in ways that foster independent thinking, engage the students with historical conversations and debates, and improve students' ability to communicate in a variety of media. Students who successfully complete our programs will have a valuable set of skills for further study in graduate and professional programs, and careers in public service or private enterprise.
