History students at UM-Dearborn research a wide variety of topics, periods and areas of the world, and practice many modes of historical thinking. At the end of their studies, history majors are able to frame and investigate questions about the actions, contexts, and meanings of earlier human lives from cultural, economic, political, and social perspectives. Producing original historical research, students locate and interpret primary sources as evidence, place their inquiries in the context of relevant historiography and broader frameworks of interpretation, and integrate varied sources in a coherent argument.
