Literature and History offers the opportunity to explore an integrated program of literary, political and historical studies under the auspices of the Interdisciplinary Project in the Humanities (IPH). Students interested in Literature and History can pursue it as a fully developed track within the IPH. (A full description of the requirements for completing the Literature and History program may be found in the general listing for the IPH.) This rigorous major emphasizes the interconnectedness of these disciplines and draws on the disciplinary methods of literary analysis and historical investigation.

Studying literature and history can bring a greater coherence, substantively and methodologically, to work in the humanities and social sciences. Because the program is small, it affords the opportunity to work closely with the faculty adviser. Students also can take advantage of courses from other interdisciplinary programs, such as American Culture Studies and European Studies.
