The History Department has adjusted its work and service expectations to align with those set by the university and the State of Michigan. 

What Is U-M History?

Global, multidimensional, interdisciplinary. Regularly ranked among the top history departments in the nation, we combine state-of-the-art research with innovative teaching and a commitment to embrace all the diversity of the past. Whether you want to learn about your own community or some distant time and place, U-M history faculty can help you deepen your knowledge and enhance your skills, as they encourage you to look beneath the surface and think about not just what is said, but what has been left silent.

Why study history? History helps us place the past in context and gain a better understanding of the contingency of the present and the possibilities for the future.

Come explore our website and see how U-M History engages complexity and change in both the present and the past.
