History at Northwestern

Northwestern Department of History students in class

Our world-class department owes its reputation to outstanding faculty dedicated to teaching and research, as well as engaged students who take advantage of learning opportunities in and beyond the classroom.

The History undergraduate program teaches over 4,500 students each year, and the PhD program has over 110 students in residence.


Cakes and Classes is a fantastic opportunity for students to meet the faculty, learn about course offerings, and eat a whole lot of cake! Enjoy the thirty second video, and we'll see you at the next one beginning of fall quarter!
