History empowers you to look to the past so you can understand the complexity of present-day life. You will be challenged to discover and explain patterns of continuity and change across nations and cultures. You can explore the cultural, economic, intellectual, political, religious, and social histories of the US, Africa, Asia, and Europe. You can also delve deep into particular areas of interest: diplomatic history, military history, oral history, urban history, and the history of science.

The History program at WSSU has prepared graduates who have pursued graduate studies in history, divinity, law, and education.

When I think about WSSU, my thoughts are of dignity and integrity. The atmosphere of an HBCU is like none other. I was taught to be determined, think fast on my feet and a have great sense of pride for myself.
