Welcome to the Department of History and Philosophy

In the APSU Department of History and Philosophy you’ll never be just another face in the crowd. The courses, programs, and extracurricular opportunities that are available revolve around YOU! With offerings on campus and online during the regular academic year and over breaks, the department offers students the flexibility to complete not only general degree requirements but entire programs of study at their own pace and in a way that fits into their schedule. With a faculty made up of scholars recognized not only regionally but nationally as well, students have the chance to learn from and work with experts in their fields. With a variety of opportunities outside the classroom, including award-winning student organizations recognized across campus and around the country, majors and non-majors alike will find plenty to do.

The academic courses and programs in this department are designed to help students learn about past events and ideas but also to help students develop skills in analytical thinking and expression. Together these help prepare students for success along a variety of academic and professional career paths. These may include education, public service, or postgraduate study in the humanities or social studies, or in such applied fields as law, religion, and business.
