The Department of History offers studies in a variety of historical fields to prepare students for the Bachelor of Arts degree, the Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education, and the Bachelor of Arts degree with Paralegal Studies.

The Department has designed a curriculum that prepares students for advanced study at the graduate level. Students interested in a more diverse career track may also apply what they learn to professions in law, government, museum work, and historical preservation. Business and industry commonly employ graduates with a history degree because of their advanced writing, analytic and research skills.

Our History degree with Paralegal Studies program is approved by the American Bar Association and taught exclusively with Lehigh Carbon Community College on Kutztown University's campus. The Paralegal Concentration is comprised of seven Paralegal Courses offered exclusively through our alliance with Lehigh Carbon Community College (LCCC).   

Our Bachelor of Science Program in Secondary Education offers qualified graduates provisional certification from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in Social Studies Education.
