The History program at Loras College combines the personal attention students receive at a small private college with a broad curriculum that is usually available only at a large institution. We offer courses that cover every historical period around the globe. Whether you are interested in ancient, medieval or modern history, or want to concentrate on American, European or non-Western history, you can find relevant courses in our curriculum.

The History program places special emphasis on developing academic skills, such as identifying historical problems that need further inquiry, finding and evaluating primary sources and making an original and sophisticated argument based on the critical investigation of evidence. The historical discipline values these skills as central to becoming an historian, and additionally, the ability to work in a learning community and produce new knowledge through the interpretation of primary materials can be applied to many career choices.
