Welcome to Ithaca College's History Department

Welcome new History and Social Studies majors. Whether you are attending IC as a first-year student or have transferred in, we are happy you are joining our department.

Course Offerings for First-Years and Students

file-outline Course Offerings at the 100-, 200-, and 300-levels - History Fall 2020 Courses for Incoming Students.pdf (18.35 MB)

In this pdf, you can see which courses our faculty are offering in the fall.  First-years should concentrate on the 100-levels.  Transfers should consider courses at the 200- and 300-levels, depending on how many credits were completed prior to matriculation.  


Dear future IC student,

You should have already received a letter from me welcoming you to Ithaca College and introducing you to our program and faculty.  With the campus closed for the next few weeks, you might have even more questions about the college and our History and Social Studies Education programs.  Do not hesitate to reach out.  I would be happy to set up a Zoom meeting or a phone call.  As I am currently away from my office, it is best to email me with your contact information to set up a time for us to converse.
