Welcome to the Department of History at the University of Maryland.

The Department of History at the University of Maryland embraces the diversity of the human past with a global vision and a variety of methods of inquiry. Our fifty faculty form a community of accomplished scholars whose specialties examine cultures across the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, and whose chronologies stretch from antiquity to the late modern. Maryland’s professors also explore the history of the natural sciences, the environment, and the economy. Both our undergraduate and graduate students consequently benefit from a curriculum enriched by the many questions our faculty pose of the past.
