Here's a list of colleges with outstanding undergrad history departments. However, there are many other schools that also have excellent history departments as well so this list is by no means comprehensive. In comparing history departments, look at the number and type of courses offered each semester, type of research opportunities available on campus and off, number of history majors, number of professors in the department and their backgrounds. Some schools will also be stronger in one area of history (i.e. American vs. European vs. Asian vs. ancient) so if you have any preference, find out what the department considers to be its area of strength.
U of Dallas
Goucher (historic preservation)
U Mich Ann Arbor
UNC Chapel Hill
U of the South
Southwestern U (Texas)
Southern Methodist U
Trinity U (Texas)
U of Vermont
U of Virginia
William and Mary
Washington and Lee

Real nice how ure history list has like 80 colleges, really narrows things down...
Princeton, Yale and Chicago all have very strong history programs

Yes, Princeton, Yale and Chicago are wonderful for history BUT not everyone has the qualifications to get into those schools or wants to go to them. The truth is, there are plenty of schools that have excellent history departments for students who aren't Ivy material so I listed a number of options. Sorry that you felt the list was too long.
