Undergraduate History

Cicero believed, "to know nothing of what happened before you were born is to remain ever a child." The History Department assumes that intellectual and moral maturity requires the study of the past.

The Department of History offers a varied yet comprehensive program of historical study that emphasizes the development of analytical, research, and communication skills. The program is especially suitable for students who are interested in careers in teaching, law, government or nonprofit service, institutional research, and management, or who wish to pursue graduate study or professional training.
