Welcome to History at UC Merced. At the first research university of the twenty-first century, we have an innovative major with several tracks of specialization. In their senior year, all students complete a senior project. Students also have the option of participating in an internship. In the interdisciplinary environment of UC Merced, history faculty and students interact with those in World Heritage, Literature, Anthropology, Geography, the Arts and many other programs. The History faculty are part of the Graduate Group in Humanities and World Cultures. Faculty areas of expertise include political and diplomatic history, social and cultural history, intellectual history and digital history. Please contact any of the history faculty or the SSHA student advisor for more information.
