The study of History deals with the past - it interprets human affairs and institutions as they change in time. By actively exploring the past we strive to understand the complexities of the present and to anticipate the challenges of the future. The Department of History offers courses designed to lead students, in stages, to an understanding of the historian's craft and of the historical process. As a student of History, you will improve your ability to evaluate evidence and learn how to present your interpretations in clear and logical written and oral arguments.
