Welcome | History at Fordham University
Historical understanding is the foundation of liberal education at Fordham University. Most students enroll in at least two history courses during their undergraduate careers, and many feel inspired to take more.  The Department of History offers undergraduate majors and minors at both the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses and graduate study at the Rose Hill campus.

Undergraduate courses cover a global cultures, events, and themes--from medieval warfare to the war in Vietnam, from early monasticism to sexual revolutions, from technology to food. Graduate study centers on two major areas: Medieval Europe and Modern History. It is also possible for graduate students to develop a specialized program of study along national lines (we are especially strong in the history of the British Isles, Germany, Italy and France from the middle ages to modern times), or thematically, such as cultural or intellectual history.

The History Faculty at Fordham University are dedicated to excellence in teaching, research, and University and professional service.  Members of the Department have received University teaching awards, book awards, and prestigious fellowships, and have published their research in the most significant journals and presses. Many have held high office in professional organizations and within the University. History faculty continue to shape and administer interdisciplinary programs such as American Studies, Irish Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, Medieval Studies, Environmental Policy, Peace and Justice Studies, Women’s Studies, and others.
