Mission Statement

The Department of History teaches students how people, geography, ideas, science/technology, conflict, and culture shape and are shaped over time by the human experience. By engendering in students a historical perspective on the present and future, the Department contributes to their preparation for citizenship in a rapidly changing global community. More specifically, the Department prepares students for careers in education, public history, and a wide array of professions in which research-based problem solving, self-directed learning, articulate oral and written communication, and cultural literacy are prized.
