Grad student credits UC with supporting Ivy League journey

June 12, 2024

In 2022, Disha Ray completed her Bachelor's in Honours History at St Stephen's College at the University of Delhi in India. With her sights set on a master's degree, Ray looked at options overseas to find a fit for her next stage of education. Graduating from one of the top schools in India, Ray wanted to continue her education at a high-level institute. After some research, Ray set her standards and set out to find the best university for her. That search led her to UC, where she found what she was looking for. Despite the challenges of moving from India to the United States, Ray thrived in the master’s in history program in the College of Arts and Sciences.

What is History?

June 11, 2024

History majors thus gain the tools to examine and understand the world of the present by examining and learning about the world of the past, with each student designing a course of study tailored around those elements of the past that most fascinate them, whether a geographic region (e.g. Europe, Asia, the United States, Latin America), or a theme that crosses regional and temporal boundaries (e.g. religion and culture; race, ethnicity and inequality; law and society; globalization and transregional connections; technology, science and medicine. At UC, students can make the major customizable to their individual interests, allowing them to pull from a wide range of history classes to create a major that matches their specific area of focus. Students may focus on one of these five areas of thematic concentration within the major, or if none of these fit, students can pick a self-directed concentration comprised of courses of selected in consultation with a faculty mentor. With UC’s vast body of archives, rare books, and library filled with about 4.4 million volumes, making it the thirty-sixth largest academic library in the US, students have the materials to go into any direction of study.
