History at the University of Wyoming

The Department of History at U.W. offers innovative research and dedicated teaching to our more than 200 undergraduate majors, minors and graduate students. Our coursework forms the backbone of the B.A. and M.A. programs in History along with the concurrent History major for students pursuing Secondary Education.

Long committed to the history of the American West, our department is uniquely positioned to situate this field in a global context. Drawing on expertise ranging from East and Central Asia to Europe and the Americas, we strive to explore historical questions with thematic as well as comparative approaches. In this way our goal is to give students a truly global perspective on history.
