Welcome to the School of History!
A complete listing of history-related projects may be found at the History Portal.

A school is a large organizational structure which can contain various departments and divisions. These should be listed in the "departments and divisions" section. The school page itself should not contain many learning resources. It may contain some projects for developing learning resources, and it may also contain recommendations for specific programs of study. Most learning resources are linked to from specialized portals in the "Topic:" namespace. The School of History is for coordinating the activities of Wikiversity participants who edit the History-related pages of Wikiversity.
