Creighton exists for students and learning.

The Department of History at Creighton University is a vibrant community of experienced and productive faculty members and talented and ambitious students. Our courses cover the world and invite students to immerse themselves in virtually every time period of human history. Beyond the curriculum, we offer opportunities for undergraduate research, internships, study abroad, presentation and publication, fellowships, and more.

A history degree from Creighton is a valuable credential that sets no limits on what you can do or what you can become. Our graduates are successful in many different educational and professional settings.

The mission of the Department of History is to prepare graduates with the knowledge and skills to bring historical insights to the study of the human experience, past and present. As a scholarly community, we aim to stimulate critical and creative thinking, to provide an ethical framework for operation in an increasingly complex world, and to form socially committed, active citizens who are the hallmark products of a Jesuit liberal arts education.
