History is the study of the human experience in all times and places. Historians believe only by examining the past can we understand the present and prepare for the future. In this endeavor, they discover, record, and preserve the history of the world.

Research is a vital part of the History major at University of Arizona. History majors learn the truth of President Harry Truman’s statement: “The only thing new in the world is the history you don’t know.” Their research requires the latest computer facilities, the ability to write clear, well-documented prose and, most of all, the desire to learn what makes humanity tick.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
