The History Department encourages its majors to involve themselves in off-campus programs of study and internships, particularly the Department’s Great Cities Program, which gives students the opportunity to experience directly and to enjoy the history and culture of some of the great cities of the world, such as London, Paris, Dublin, Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, Quebec City, and Mexico City.
