Department of


History Club

The History Club at USD brings together History majors, minors, History graduate students, prospective majors or minors, alumni, faculty and students, and anyone interested in the study of history. The organization puts together fun activies—formal and informal—that build a sense of a community and promote history at USD. It organizes excursions, speakers, film screenings, events around various history months, academic panel discussions and guest lectures, social gatherings, and further dialogue between faculty and students. It may also act as informal resource and support network for history students, e.g. by facilitating the sharing of advice, helping history students find resources, connect to the almuni community, and organize graduate school or job application workshops focused on the skills and resources you bring as a history major/minor. Membership is free.

Note: students can be a member of both the History Club and History Honors Society.
