The Area of History at Fayetteville State University takes its responsibilities and commitments seriously in facilitating the development of “quality-learning” for citizens of southeastern North Carolina and surrounding areas. We hold the past as an important source of information that will inspire our quest for an enriched and enlightened future. History teachers provide the means for accessing this information through the use of techniques involving research, analysis, and synthesis. Through its diverse course offerings which include United States History, African-American History, Asian History, European History, African History, Latin- American History, World History, etc., the Area of History seeks to be thorough in its coverage of global societies.
Students who are interested in studying world events -- whether they are past or present events -- are invited to become “History Majors” at Fayetteville State University. The History curriculum was carefully designed to prepare scholars to function effectively in the twenty-first century. Our long-range goal is to provide the benefits of a quality education in the form of courses offered at the University as well as to produce trained professionals who will serve the surrounding community.
