The History Department at Whitman College presents history as a comparative and collaborative endeavor, a multifaceted encounter with alternative cultural possibilities. Our ten faculty members offer courses in seven geographical areas that provide a comprehensive survey of space and time from the ancient world to the Arab Spring. Through major requirements and senior exams, we stress exposure to a wide range of methodologies and topics. In recent years our majors have gone on to careers in law, medicine, secondary and higher education, international relations, librarianship and numerous other areas as rich and varied as the study of history itself.
