Welcome to the History Department

As part of a public research university, our primary mission is to create and disseminate knowledge and research methods that promote the intellectual development of our students. Our internationally recognized faculty have produced outstanding research published by leading presses in the United States and Europe on a broad spectrum of topics. Graduates of Georgia State's history programs will have the ability to analyze conflicting information and viewpoints, write clearly and communicate ideas, find reliable evidence for judgments about human actions and motives, and place particular events in a wider context or historical pattern.
