More than 250 KU students major in History, while still others minor in the field, and for good reason: the Department of History is particularly distinguished in undergraduate teaching. You can take either a BA or a BGS in History. The department encourages the BA for the foreign language skills you will develop, but does not require it. You may also choose to double-major or pursue a minor in History.
We offer an outstanding opportunity for the most talented students to become professional historians. The graduate program at the Department of History at the University of Kansas ranks among the best in the country. It is in the top 20 public university programs according to the US News and World Report.
