Summer 2018 Course Registration is now OPEN!

It's time to sign up for Summer 2018 courses with the History Department! This year, we're offering a number of interesting classes, available at multiple Loyola campuses, as well as online. Registration is officially open, so head over to the Loyola Summer Courses page and scroll down to the "History" dropdown to learn more. 

The Department is excited to offer an online graduate-level course with Dr. Aidan Forth entitled "Settler Colonialism and Indigenous Displacement: A Global and American History." This class examines the vast expansion of settler societies in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and considers the lingering conflicts and inequalities that have resulted.  With an historical, comparative and transnational perspective, we travel from America to Australia, and from Israel to Manchuria to examine settler colonialism as a distinct though widespread form of violence and domination.  How did settlers build the modern world?  And at what cost to the environment and to indigenous communities in their way? This graduate-level course is also a great opportunity for teachers and instructors to refresh their teaching materials and learn how to challenge their students to think more deeply about human migration and movement. Check out this flyer for more information!

We're also happy to announce that the following 100- and 200-level courses are to be offered: 

Students may also choose to do a History Internship for credit. Internships allow students to earn three course credits while gaining valuable professional experience in public and private institutions engaged in history-related projects. Internship possibilities include historical associations and societies; oral history projects; museums and halls of fame; entrepreneurial history firms; genealogical services; preservation agencies; and archives and libraries. Interns work for a minimum of five hours per week in an internship position jointly agreed upon by the student and the internship director. Interns are also required to attend seminar meetings, keep a weekly journal, and write a paper related to the internship experience. Want to learn more about the History Internship?
