Studying History at Kenyon

Students engage the past as a living, breathing reality that holds real meaning and the potential for clues to understanding contemporary life. Course offerings in history are deep and wide, covering U.S. history, early modern and modern European history, African and Asian history, and Latin American history. More than half of all history classes are taught in a small seminar format, and students join with their teachers as explorers of the past through research, theoretical considerations and integration of coursework.
