Its curriculum is comprehensive in scope, thus permitting the student to choose from a wide variety of courses in completing the requirements for the major and minor. In addition to standard courses on various geographical areas and topical subjects, the department offers courses in the African Diaspora, public history, and the history of women. Students may receive practical experience as historians by serving as interns in history in the Smithsonian Institution, the National Archives, the State Department, and other public agencies as well as in private institutions and projects in the Washington area. Such experience may lead eventually to jobs or careers in public history.
