The History Department at UNR includes a diverse faculty, who have won numerous teaching awards, and are eminent scholars specializing in virtually every time period and region of the world. 


Interested in the history and culture of Nevada, the Inquisition, the Middle East, Ancient Rome, Venice, the Aztecs, Tourism in Hawaii, the Civil Rights movement, or the Civil War? We have classes for that and so much more! 

History majors may focus on different time periods and regions, but they all learn to analyze sources critically. This critical analysis and our cutting edge programs, from reading and writing to digital history and museum studies, will prepare students to embark on an exciting career path. Our professors and students are excited to meet you and assist you in our favorite subject…History!
