The History Major

Hands-on research at Maryland’s historic first capital


Located at historic St. Mary’s City, we boast hands-on field study right in our backyard. Explore the local historical landmarks, or even participate in an archaeological dig on campus! History majors will work in small class sizes with supportive faculty. History students can also explore the culture of another country with a study abroad program.
