The Columbia Undergraduate Journal of History is a publication of the Undergraduate History Council at Columbia University. To solicit material, the Undergraduate History Council asks professors from history departments across the United States and internationally to nominate the most outstanding undergraduate work from their classes. We review all nominated articles, and then select the most exemplary among them to be published in the Journal.

Before submitting or nominating articles to the Journal: please view our submission guidelines.

Keep up to date with announcements and information by joining the Columbia Undergraduate Journal of History facebook group.
