History

Major:

Minor:

History critically studies the past and those key values which have shaped society. The best tradition of historical study enables students to assess change over time and to create an interpretative narrative of the human experience. As an intellectual discipline, historical study includes historiography and historiographical interpretation, critical evaluation of historical sources, and causation and contextualization. Students in historical studies courses should be able to identify what historical details are necessary to understand how change occurs and how the topic at hand relates to wider (temporal and spatial) historical frameworks.

History also provides students with a sense of perspective and with the ability to make critical judgments. Those with a sharply honed historical consciousness know that often what appears to be a simple solution to a simple problem will not work because unexpressed historical forces and traditions lie just beneath the surface. Therefore, historical consciousness helps to make the world comprehensible. To be ignorant of history is to be, in a very fundamental way, intellectually defenseless, unable to understand the workings of this or other societies. Thus all totalitarian societies have stringently controlled the study and writing of history. They recognize that a free mind needs to know its past, to debate and discuss how the world came to be as it is, in order to know what to defend and what to change and how to resist imposed ideologies.

Students majoring in history are offered a flexible curriculum that allows them to have a double major or one or more minors. Students are also strongly encouraged to develop interdisciplinary areas of concentration to meet their interests and vocational goals. Examples of areas of concentration are:

  • Pre-law
  • Business
  • International Studies and Human Rights
  • Historical Administration and Preservation
  • Archival Management 
  • Social Sciences

History majors should consult the department's Director of Curriculum and Advising for further details.
