History

Programs


History constitutes an intellectual challenge because of its special responsibility: the search for reality in the past. An understanding of history requires one to integrate many branches of knowledge. Individual history courses cut across lines of the social sciences, humanities, and even the natural sciences. More important to the history student than learning what has happened is understanding the process of change. By comparing the human condition over decades or centuries, the history student identifies fundamental social trends and analyzes critical causal factors. The history student develops research, analytical and writing skills necessary not only for work, but for living. History is an all-inclusive discipline, making it an excellent choice for those with flexible career goals.
