History is a record of political, social and cultural events and achievements of humankind. Historians analyze and evaluate this record in an attempt to understand and interpret the present.
The history offerings are designed to: provide adequate programs to prepare teachers; prepare students who plan to do graduate work; and provide courses which contribute to the general education of all students.
The History Department participates in the Asian Studies, Environmental Studies, Ethnic Studies, European Studies and Latin American Studies Minor Programs. Students who wish to enroll in one of these programs should indicate their desire to do so with the program coordinator who will help them work out a proper combination of courses to fit their particular needs. (See the Engaged Learning, Honors, and Interdisciplinary Programs section of this catalog.)
