History turns the past into your future!


If you have a passion for all things historic, then you've come to the right place. 

As a history major at the University of Findlay, you will be challenged in classes such as:

  • Introduction to history
  • American history
  • European history
  • Global history
  • Senior seminar - you get to be the historian
  • Four elective courses of your choice (i.e. economics, political science and geography) 


Special strengths of UF’s history program include military history, social history, women’s history, world history, film and history, state and local history, and other cutting-edge areas such as sports history, legal history and environmental history.

Are you interested in teaching history? 

You can double major in history and education at UF and teach history and social studies upon graduation. 


Would you rather be a writer? 

The combination of history and English majors will give you the background and skills needed to work as a technical writer, television reporter or communication consultant.
