An understanding of history requires students to integrate many branches of knowledge. Individual history courses integrate 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 time, history students identify fundamental social trends and analyze critical causal factors. Students develop research, analytical, and writing skills necessary not only for work, but for living. A history major builds confidence for making judgments in many fields of human endeavor.
