The department’s mission is to introduce students to the breadth and depth of the human experience by a comparative study of past and contemporary societies and cultures and to develop their ability to conduct research, analyze and assess evidence, and articulate sound conclusions both orally and in writing. Transform the students into citizens who are critically informed about the past and its consequences for the present. The knowledge about the interconnections between global national, regional, and local history will equip the students to face the challenges with confidence. To fulfill our mission, at all levels of our curriculum we emphasize discussion and engagement with both primary sources and the interpretations of varied scholars.
