All of the History faculty members at IWU have an earned doctorate in that subject. They are committed teachers, scholars, and Christians. A sample of the areas of historical study, interest, and expertise of our faculty includes: Ancient, Late Antiquity, Medieval, Early Modern Europe, England, Latin America, and U.S. Political and Constitutional History.

The History faculty strive to challenge untested assumptions, inspire thoughtful engagement, and cultivate a historical perspective in their students. They desire graduates who can critically analyze, appreciate, and honestly evaluate the past, resulting in a deeper understanding of the present, a greater appreciation of the human condition, and some inkling of where we may be headed in the future.
