Welcome to the Department of History at DePaul. Our department offers a full, rich curriculum in undergraduate and graduate education. More than 30 full and part-time outstanding faculty offer day and night courses on the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses, as well as online.

In addition to its strong undergraduate program with concentrations in public history and pre-law, as well as a standard concentration, the department offers a standard minor, a minor in the History of Law, a minor in Museum Studies, a graduate degree (MA), and several five-year combined bachelor’s + master’s degree options, all of which have the potential for exciting career opportunities (see Why Major in History).

“My undergraduate education at DePaul provided two invaluable experiences: the ability to conduct independent, in-depth archival research and the opportunity to use the city of Chicago as a lens to understand the import of the historical developments we studied in the classroom.”
