The History major begins with a foundation overview of western and non-western societies followed by a more detailed analysis of particular societies, themes, and/or regions. The major culminates in a senior essay where students research a topic in depth. Our students often comment on the ready availability of our faculty. Average classes at Richmond are both much smaller and much more ethnically diverse than at most other universities. With a typical Junior or Senior level class size of between ten or twenty students, we emphasize individual attention, small group work, student participation, personal research paper writing and seminar-style discussion.
