The Undergraduate Program
Undergraduate History Council
The Undergraduate History Council (UHC) is a group of undergraduate representatives for history majors and concentrators. They also serve as student advisors to the Undergraduate Education Committee (UNDED). Membership to the UHC is open each fall by application, and members are expected to serve for at least one full academic year (though standard service length is 1.5 years, typically beginning in the spring of the sophomore or junior year). UHC members engage in a number of independent activities intended to improve undergraduates’ educational experiences in the department.
