About the History Department
History comes alive in the Boston College History Department. Our distinguished faculty members are active participants in the scholarly community at BC and beyond, and they share their passion for innovative research through teaching and mentorship.
The wealth of historical resources in the Boston area means that our students not only benefit from working closely with the faculty, but also from having access to world-class libraries, cultural institutions, and some of the oldest historical sites in the United States.
