History Programs

The study of history challenges students to explore a variety of sources as they gain a greater understanding of the past. The College's expansive history curriculum spans a wide range of periods and developments in the Western and non-Western worlds.

History is offered as both a major and a minor.

The Department also offers a Civil War Era Studies minor and a variety of special student opportunities unique to the Gettysburg College History Department.
