Program Description:

The study of history develops an awareness and understanding of the past, a sensitivity to the rich variety of human experience and aspirations and an appreciation for the extraordinary human capacity for good and for evil. Further, it illuminates the present and renders it intelligible by providing both context and direction.

Students of history learn to reason critically and analytically, to synthesize large bodies of information and to write clearly and effectively - skills that are applicable to any job setting.
