At the first research university of the 21st century, we have an exciting and innovative major. 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 program at UC Merced offers a wide variety of interesting courses each semester.
