About History

The study of history encompasses all recorded expressions of human activity from the earliest times to the present. In history classes, students analyze historical data, search for patterns and relationships, and discover the meaning of the past and its relationship to the modern world. History is the foundation of a liberal arts education in that it introduces students to their own culture and to world cultures. Ultimately, studying history encourages students to gain an understanding of themselves and their world while becoming informed and engaged citizens. The Department of History faculty members are committed to teaching, research, and community outreach. The Department of History has a close partnership with the Civil Rights Heritage Center, which uses local and national history to promote social change through individual responsibility.
