Welcome to the Department of History at Wright State University, where we help you study what you love and prepare for life. Our nationally-recognized faculty teach courses from the ancient world to the modern, from the United States to Europe, Africa, Latin America, and Asia. Enroll in a history program at Wright State and learn how to think critically, write clearly, use evidence, and consider different points of view. You will learn about different societies and cultures and evaluate decisions made across historical periods. The study of history places contemporary events in a longer historical context, helping you understand the present by looking at the past.
