The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts and Education offers Bachelor of Arts (BA) degrees in two major areas. Our program will require students to read, write, use logic, and analyze in order to perform research using written documents and by assessing arguments to interpret change in a variety of contexts.

The history program allows you to turn your passion for the past into a future you’ll love. We offer many internship opportunities, field work, and travel possibilities early in your education. You can also share your appreciation for history with others in the History Club student organization.

We’ll prepare you with the basis for a career in many fields. Some fields are directly related to the subject matter of history while others use the skills that the study of history cultivates.
