Welcome to the Department of History at Kent State University.

We offer both major and minor programs at the undergraduate level, as well as M.A. and Ph.D. programs for advanced study in history.  The department’s course offerings at all levels are chronologically, geographically, and topically broad.  With a presence on six of Kent State’s eight campuses, the department’s faculty presently number two dozen and include many award-winning teachers and researchers.

Information about our course offerings, programs of study, faculty, and much more may be found here.  Further information may be obtained by contacting our undergraduate coordinator, Dr. Shane Strate (sstrate@kent.edu), or graduate coordinator, Dr. Kevin Adams (kadams9@kent.edu).
Thanks for your interest in the Department of History.
