Welcome to the History Department’s website. Our department offers undergraduate programs in History, History and Teacher Education, and History with a Social Studies Composite, as well as graduate programs in History and Interdisciplinary Studies with a Concentration in History. As an integral part of a liberal arts education, our courses introduce students to different historical eras, diverse cultures, famous and ordinary women and men, and a variety of geographical settings. Following Churchill’s dictum that “it is only from the past that one can judge the future,” our courses challenge students to think critically, express themselves clearly, and become informed and responsible citizens in an increasingly interconnected world.​​
