Important note for students who entered Loyola prior to Academic Year 2022-23:

The History Department is in the process of transitioning to a new curriculum. For all of our students who have entered Loyola prior to 2022 - 2023 and have not changed to Academic Catalogue 2022 - 2023, nothing has changed.

Please note that the note “closed to catalogue year 2022-2023 or beyond” refers to students who are entering Loyola in the Fall 2022 (considered Academic Year 2022 - 2023).

Here are the classes that are offered Spring 2023 

Important note for students starting at Loyola in the Fall of 2022:

Students entering Loyola in the Fall of 2022 and beyond will take HS 100: Encountering the Past as their first history core and a 200-level history course as their second history core.

Each section of HS100: Encountering the Past will take on a different historical subject as a case study. Here is a list of upcoming topics.

Below is a tentative listing of courses that will be offered in Spring 2023. Majors should take HS 400 The Historian's Craft in their sophomore year if at all possible. For Course descriptions, please go to Course Catalog.
