Mission Statement

The History Department supports University goals by offering to students a broad university education based on the world’s arts, letters and sciences; all of which have a history to learn.  Members of the History Faculty strive to enlarge the student’s intellect with in-depth knowledge of historical methods leading to job competence or graduate school.  Finally, it takes as a central goal the development of a student’s ability to think historically and communicate effectively.

Outcomes

  2. Communicate effectively about the past through written and oral presentations.
  3. Analyze arguments and perspectives of others.
  4. Develop historical ways of thinking to assess critically the past.
