April 12, 2018 is UCSB Give Day — Please consider making a donation to the History Department!
The UCSB History Department is proud of its accomplishments:
- In the last National Research Council ranking of academic departments we ranked number 1 among all public university History Departments
- For two consecutive years the Harold J. Plous award has gone to a member of our department—this is the highest honor conferred to a single junior professor across all departments at UC Santa Barbara
- In the past twelve months our faculty have won seventeen major awards
- Our BAs gain admission to top ranked graduate and professional schools and go on in their professions to give back to society
- At last year’s Humanities and Fine Arts Graduation Ceremony, graduating History Majors were awarded more campus-wide awards than did students from any other department
- In the past three years, the number of History Majors has increased by 20 percent
