Department of History

In the History Department, students develop an appreciation of studying the past both for the wisdom it affords and for the ways in which it can promote critical thinking, effective communicating, and responsible citizenship. The curriculum exposes students to both the breadth and depth of historical inquiry, and successful majors will be able to demonstrate the knowledge and skills on which the discipline is based. This knowledge and these skills provide an appropriate background for graduate and professional school and many kinds of non-academic employment. Find the department on the third floor of Langdale Hall.
