United States History
With 19 full-time professors and a robust selection of courses, U.S. history is the largest field of specialty offered by IU’s History Department. Students of U.S. history at Indiana examine a rich mix of topics, ideas, and literatures. In addition to their chosen focus in the history of the United States, many take advantage of the department’s strengths in fields ranging from Latin American, African American, and European history to such thematic topics as the history of gender and sexuality, medicine, or law. The outside minor option also allows graduate students in U.S. History to pursue serious work in related disciplines such as English, Sociology, Folklore, and Political Science.
Because there is no single “correct” way to study U.S. history, our program has been designed to incorporate the diverse strengths of both the department and the University in the scholarly preparation of a diverse mix of graduate and undergraduate students.
