Department of Historical and Cultural Studies

Welcome to the Department of Historical and Cultural Studies!

Individually and combined, the five academic programs that comprise HCS — Classical Studies, Food Studies, Global Asia Studies, History, and Women's and Gender Studies – offer a critical lens on the processes that shape our world, situating them in multiple global and local contexts. Our programs equip students with a range of skills such as critical thinking, oral and written communication, collaboration, and research and analytical skills, that will prepare them to be successful in a variety of fields including law and public policy, government, education, community and social services, communications, business, management and much more.

We invite you to discover and learn more about our fascinating programs and courses, and to get in touch if you have any questions.
