History at Michigan is global, multidimensional, interdisciplinary. Regularly ranked among the top history departments in the country, we combine state-of-the-art research with innovative teaching and a commitment to embrace all the diversity of the past. With nearly half our faculty holding joint appointments, reaching beyond traditional boundaries is central to our intellectual and pedagogical culture. History is a part of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA), the heart of the University of Michigan, and an extraordinary center of creativity, inquiry, and discovery. Combining the best of a research institution and a liberal arts college, students and faculty in more than 70 departments and programs explore the world's biggest questions together.
