  • Objectives
    Carleton's Department of History offers a broad selection of courses, ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day. Although our major focus is the history of Europe and North America, you'll also have the opportunity to study histories of East Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. The faculty of the Department of History is pushing the boundaries of historical knowledge in new directions. But their goal -- to reconstruct past events, to comprehend what they meant in their own times, and to establish what they mean to us today -- remain the same.
