Welcome to the Department of History and Philosophy at Kennesaw State University! Do human nature and the human past fascinate you? Do you want to get the "big picture"? Does the idea of a career in business, law, government, international business, education, research, public history or historic preservation intrigue you? Consider one of the majors offered by the Department of History and Philosophy. We offer B.A. degrees in History or Philosophy, and a B.S. degree in History Education. You can minor in either History or Philosophy, and you can earn a certificate in Public History. These pages introduce our faculty, describe our courses and programs, and provide resources for faculty and students.

Statement on Diversity and Hate Speech

In light of the recent social media attacks directed at students of color and non-Christian students at Kennesaw State University, the faculty, deans, department chairs, and school directors of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences emphasize our commitment to condemn and confront hate-speech and discrimination directed against members of our campus community. We celebrate differences of color, religion, and sexual orientation and identity as we prepare our students for the diversity they will encounter in the workplace. We call on members of our college and the wider campus community to affirm the CHSS mission “to empower our students to understand the human condition, to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century, and to become contributing citizens in a global society.” It is the responsibility of all members of the KSU community—including students, faculty, staff and administrators—to challenge and report violations of the Student Code of Conduct and to help foster a safe and peaceful campus. We must engage these issues rather than being silent.
