History & Geography


Providing two essential fields of study

The History and Geography Department at NKU provides two essential fields of study that give us a better understanding of the world in which we live.

History provides an insight into significant events that shaped society and had a lasting impact on the human condition. Even though few students become professional historians, the study of history provides a solid foundation for careers in government, law education, business and many more.

Geography is a social science dealing with the impact people have on the world's environment. It's a liberal arts degree that can open the door to several careers. Our graduates have gone into advanced studies in park management, urban planning, meteorology and medicine.   

We invite you to explore our Web site to find out more. If you still have questions, please contact William Landon, our department chair.
