Students in UW-La Crosse History Department's history major with topical emphasis in cultural and social history will study the history of cultural and social forces embodied in movements and organizations; art, literature, and film; areas of human experience including apparel, architecture, and culinary practices; and the various commercial media inundating our daily lives. Our students will learn how social and cultural phenomena have historically affected and structured our material and intellectual environment in connection with ethical concerns involving political and economic questions.

In general, the History Department's cultural and social history emphasis will help students develop and make tangible the kinds of relatively intangible skills prospective employers and professional and graduate school admissions committees will value: problem solving, analytical and creative thinking, research skills, the ability to express oneself and one's thoughts clearly and persuasively both verbally and in writing, intercultural communication skills, and the capacity to address immediate concerns with the kind of "big picture" perspective that a historically grounded education provides.

A topical emphasis in public and policy history refers to scholarly work that seeks out audiences beyond the classroom and the academic journal. While professional historians may study a vast array of time periods, peoples, and topics, public and policy history is distinct in that it seeks to spread that research to broader audiences, and also to take as its subject of study those attempts to connect history to the people.

Students in the UWL History Department’s history major with topical emphasis in religious studies will have an opportunity to study the fascinating phenomenon of religion from a variety of disciplinary perspectives with course offerings in the Departments of History, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. The religious studies emphasis challenges students to question common stereotypes about religion and religious people, to become aware of the multiple roles and functions religion plays in human cultural life, and to both critically scrutinize and emphatically understand the rationales that have shaped the wide variety of religious world views, behaviors, and experiences that humans have used in the course of constructing, maintaining, and inhabiting their cultural worlds.
