Loyola University Maryland

Department of History

Banner

The history major at Loyola combines rigorous study with close interaction between students and faculty. The focus of the history department is to teach not just the "facts" of history, but the patterns and interpretations as well.

The department emphasizes the skills of research, analysis, argument, and writing. In addition to classroom contacts, events such as departmental lectures and colloquia help to keep history majors, minors, and faculty current with each other's work and concerns.
