The OAH is pleased to welcome the following departments and organizations as Partners through our newest initative.
Our 35 distinguished faculty members share a passion for innovative research, teaching, and mentorship. Covering U.S., Latin American, European, Middle Eastern, African, and South and East Asian history, we see studying history as essential for any understanding of the modern globalized world. Our undergraduates learn to use evidence critically, to write persuasively, and to increase their cultural awareness. Some decide to study history at graduate level, but our majors enter a range of professions such as law, business, government and foreign service, journalism, and teaching. At graduate level, the department's MA and PhD programs attract talented students from the United States and around the world. We offer training in a range of comparative and global fields, including the history of religion, empire, and migration. While most graduates of our doctoral program become academic historians, the department is committed to assisting students who are interested in positions in university administration, museums, archives, and research institutes.

The department offers day and night courses on the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses. The history major offers a foundation for any number of career paths.

The Suffolk University history faculty believe that the study of history is a gateway to both knowledge and perspective. Without a familiarity of the past, we are unable to benefit from the experiences of those who have come before us. History students develop skills in logical reasoning, research, marshaling evidence, argumentation, and written and oral expression. Broadly educated graduates with these skills are well-positioned for careers in a wide variety of fields, from law and business to teaching, public service, and the media.The History Department offers students a wide range of options, including majors and minors in history and an honors major in history and literature. The history department has particular strengths in the areas of American, European, African-American, and Asian history, as well as public history and the history of women and gender.
Why come to Suffolk? Our students have easy access to Boston's most famous historical attractions and sites, including the Freedom Trail, the Old State House, and the Charlestown Navy Yard, home to the U.S.S. Constitution. At Suffolk, these landmarks are your campus. Here, in a city rich with culture and steeped in history, our neighborhood is a mosaic of major moments in time. Best of all, our majors watch history being made: Suffolk is home to the Ford Hall Forum, America's oldest free public lecture series. We're known for hosting speakers who've changed the course of world affairs—from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, to civil rights leaders Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., to feminist pioneer Gloria Steinem.
