Your future in preserving our past

We learn a great deal about our world, government, culture, and ourselves through the study of history. We are proud to have an amazing history program at UW-Eau Claire. Our students have the opportunity to complete substantial research projects through faculty-student collaboration, take their history studies abroad, and intern across the country. This is just scratching the surface; the opportunities are endless. Join the history department at UWEC and find out where history can take you in the future.
