UVU’s History Program is dedicated to developing the twenty-first
century student. We provide the general student body a broad range of
courses that increase global awareness, engagement and informed
citizenship, as well as develop critical thinking, writing, and oral
expression. In addition, History majors can choose from a large number
of in-depth upper division courses that further their content knowledge
and expand their abilities to critically analyze past and current events
in a variety of regions and nations. In all courses, students and
faculty observe the human experience by investigating the diverse
historical perspectives of the past and present.
History faculty endeavor to teach in ways that foster independent thinking, engage the students with historical conversations and debates, and improve students’ ability to communicate in a variety of media. Students who successfully complete our programs will have a valuable set of skills for further study in graduate and professional programs, and careers in public service or private enterprise.
