Welcome to the Department of History. As scholars of the past, we believe that the study of history is exciting, vibrant and vitally relevant to understanding the world in which we live, and the future we are creating. Through intense classroom contact, innovative teaching methods and extensive student research projects, we instill in our students human values, critical thinking skills and an appreciation for the complexities of issues that have been of perennial importance.
