Why Study History at Taylor?

We strive to develop you with a Christian perspective on history while providing tools and skills you need in order to succeed not just in the classroom but the future as well. We see our discipline as a wonderful foundation for a variety of careers.

What type of student would ideally suit Taylor’s History Department?

If you enjoy thinking deeply, discussing passionately, and reading reflectively, then you would make an ideal history student. We strongly value students who, through their Christian faith, have a caring heart and are passionate about the quality of life for people both in the US and throughout the world.

What professional development opportunities are there outside of the classroom?

There are several options outside of the classroom you can be a part of. You can be a Teaching Assistant (TA) with professors through the US and World survey courses, work in the Social Science Division or in museums, do an internship with Public History, or involve yourself in a variety of humanitarian organizations. 

Will I have the opportunity to study abroad while in this program?

Along with numerous overseas missions trips and study abroad programs available to all Taylor students, International Studies majors are required to spend a semester studying overseas. This time can be spent in a variety of countries including China, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, England, France, Israel, Lithuania, and Uganda.
