- With world-class faculty studying diverse peoples, ideas, and cultures from around the globe and across the ages
- Whose professors are widely recognized as among the best teachers in the university
- Where nearly forty percent of the faculty (20 of 48) have won Association of Former Students Distinguished Teaching Awards or other prestigious classroom honors
- Where professors—not temporary instructors or graduate students—teach the vast majority of all undergraduate courses (over 90 percent in most semesters)
- Where students take two writing-intensive research seminars with just 15 or fewer classmates
- Where students choose from a wide variety of elective courses that explore the vast diversity of the human experience through time
- Where successful and highly motivated students have the opportunity to participate in Honors programs that challenge their interests and abilities
- Where students have the opportunity to present their own research at the annual History Student Conference
- Where funding is awarded on a competitive basis for students to travel to archives to conduct research or to professional conferences to deliver papers
- Whose professors are devoted to developing students’ critical thinking, writing, reading, and speaking skills
- Whose graduates have gone to leading law schools, medical schools, and Ph.D. programs, and have landed other jobs in business management, government service, education, and public relations.
