History and Classics at Providence College

Why Study History or Classics at Providence College? 
Passionate faculty. Incredible students. These are essential ingredients of the best history departments. Our faculty members are internationally recognized scholars and passionate educators. Our students, inside the classroom and beyond it, are captivated by the events and cultures that have shaped our world. They have gone on to become educators and lawyers, CEOs and community organizers, diplomats and peacemakers.

Away from the classroom, internships and our history club bring lessons to life — as does our annual Maymester course, which has taken students to Germany, Poland, Hungary, England, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, and Japan in the past five years. So, whether you want to learn about our world in the classroom or experience it in person, we want you to take the journey with us.
