Nichols College

Learn. Lead. Succeed


Our program cultivates engaged and civically minded professionals who are deeply aware of the roots of today’s national and global issues. Our courses challenge students to recognize change or continuity over time, to consider multiple perspectives, to develop their own interpretations of the past, and to express their arguments effectively across multiple mediums.

The analytical and communication skills that set a Nichols’ education apart will develop students’ professional readiness and prepare them for careers in fields such as business, law, education, government, journalism, public relations, non-profit, and public history.

History majors and minors will have the opportunity to study with professors whose experience covers a wide variety of coursework in political, economic, social, cultural, and military history. Our offerings are always evolving to reflect student interest and the latest academic thought. Check out our Twitter feed to learn more about our courses, events, speakers, writing, and research.
