What courses will you take?
Located in a city steeped in history, UMass Lowell's History Department has a small department feel with the resources of a large research university.
You will take courses designed to help you think and write critically about history. The program requires 39 credits (13 courses), including survey courses in world and U.S. history as well as advanced courses in European, American and global/comparative history.
We also offer two seminars on methodology and research, allowing you to gain additional training in historical methodology. Advanced undergraduates may take graduate classes in history, or other subjects, with instructor permission.
