Graduate Study in History

The Department of History supports graduate study in Public History and US Social and Cultural History with a focus on the 19th and 20th centuries. Faculty strengths in this area include urban history, digital history, the built environment, labor, the history of sexuality, the history of women and gender, the history of political economy, and the history of popular culture and entertainment.

Led by a diverse and nationally-acclaimed faculty, our curriculum is designed to develop a deep understanding of the human past and to provide students with insight into the world in which they live through a perspective of time and change. Loyola History graduate students also have excellent opportunities for learning and exploration outside of the classroom.

Infused by our Jesuit mission, we support study that deepens our understanding of the human condition, reflects a shared commitment to a just and humane society, and puts knowledge to work in the world.
