About History

The Federated History Department’s programs include general education courses for students earning an undergraduate degree at Rutgers-Newark; for undergraduate majors and minors in History; and for students pursuing one of our two master's program degrees (an M.A. or an M.A.T.).

The Department's undergraduate mission is twofold: to introduce students to the breadth and depth of the human experience by a comparative study of past and contemporary societies and cultures, and to develop their ability to conduct research, analyze and assess evidence, and articulate sound conclusions both orally and in writing.
