Welcome to The State University of New York at Fredonia History Department!
Our department offers a number of dynamic programs at the undergraduate level, including majors in History and Social Studies Adolescence Education. Our faculty are committed teachers and scholars who promote student learning through a broad, yet rigorous, analysis of the past. Our programs are designed to enhance students’ knowledge of the past and to develop strong critical thinking and writing skills.
At Fredonia, students “do history” by conducting original research, analyzing sources, developing arguments, and communicating their findings. In addition, opportunities to engage in service learning, internships, scholarly conferences, and study abroad promote the development of skills and competencies students will need for work and life in a complex, global community.
