Biographical history

The Department of History was established on April 28th 1976. Prior to its establishment, history courses and professors were active under the jurisdiction of the Department of Sociology, as well as various other departments such as Applied Geography and Liberal Arts. While the department existed, it did not have the ability to confer stand-alone degrees in its discipline until 2012, the first year a dedicated degree program was established for the Department of History. Prior to being able to grant their own degrees, the Department of History was an option under Arts and Contemporary Studies (circa. 2006).
