Department of History

The study of history is central to a liberal arts education, and provides students with the insights and analytical skills useful to understanding our contemporary world. The history major at Old Dominion University prepares students for careers in government service, law, international trade, education, journalism, and other areas. History majors from ODU have gone on to the Ph.D. in history as well as related fields in the humanities and social sciences. Many of our history majors have become exceptional teachers.
