The Brown History Department • Research, teaching, and public outreach devoted to the study of humanity's vast and diverse past.

We are a community of scholars and students committed to the values and ethics of rigorous education in the humanities. The department trains students in the fundamentals of historical thinking and practice, skills and habits of mind that provide a foundation for excellence in a wide range of careers and professions, including teaching, law, medicine, business, public service, and advanced historical research.

We invite you to take a look at who we are and what we do by watching the video below, browsing through our news section, and reading the History Department Newsletter.  You can also follow us on Twitter (@BrownHist) and Facebook
