Department Chair: Peter Kastor

Through research, teaching, publishing, and public service, the History Department at Washington University situates itself at the core of the university. We are committed to a comprehensive and diverse curriculum for undergraduates, which not only imparts important knowledge about the past, but cultivates skills that are crucial for life and work in today's twenty-first century world: research, analysis and interpretation, argument, and clear writing.
