History in Three

Want a chance to explore 20th century US politics and culture, then move to medieval Italy and religion? How about studying race and society in the Caribbean and then 19th century New England and New York? You can take a diverse array of courses with the Saint Michael’s History department AND earn your degree in three years with the Degree in Three program.

Students studying in the department of History will get personalized academic advising from professional scholars and published authors in their areas of expertise. Explore a variety of regions and time periods, including the United States, Europe (modern, medieval, and ancient), Latin America, East Asia, and the Islamic world, while gaining knowledge from an experienced and enthusiastic faculty.
