Historical Note

History classes have been taught since 1861 when history classes were first taught to freshman. In 1875 the History department was created. In 1883 it merged with the political economy department to become the Department of History and Political Economy. In 1899 History separated and became its own department. In 1908 the department changed to History and Economics and in then in 1916 History merged with Political Science to become the Department of History and Political Science. In 1949 History once again became its own department. In 2005 administration of the department changed from the College of Arts and Letters to the College of Social Science.
