Welcome to the Department of History at the University of Louisville.  We are one of the original departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, and we offer a full range of courses, from our introductory History of Civilizations to graduate classes.  For over a hundred years, we’ve been here to help you, whether you want to major in history, get a Master’s degree with us, or just take care of your History General Education requirements.

The links on the left will allow you to meet our faculty, explore our graduate and undergraduate programs.  Our new Graduate certificate in Public History along with lists of the Tachau winners and the Gottschalk Lecturers are also available.

If you want to drop in and meet us, we’re located in the Belknap Campus’s historic Gottschalk Hall, which was built in 1894.  Our office is open Monday to Friday (except holidays) from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Or you can phone us at (502) 852-6817, fax us at (502) 852-0770, or email us at


All of us try to provide our students with the best service possible.  No one is perfect, though, and if you feel you need help resolving a problem with a class or a professor, please contact me.
