Department of History

The Greensboro College history department is led by scholar-educators who focus on not only the classic historical texts and contexts, but challenge the narratives and conceptions of the past through critical inquiry and hands-on field experience.

Students of history at Greensboro College are introduced to history on every scale – from global/world to local, like the history of the North Carolina Piedmont – and have the opportunity to complete personalized, one-on-one research projects under the direction of faculty, as well as internships in public history. Through this program, students not only grapple with the challenges of the past but learn how to apply those lessons as opportunities for a better future.

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”
