Mission of the History Degree Program

The History program is designed to provide students with a broad liberal arts education by creating an environment for students to develop academic skills in understanding American culture and history as well as those of other societies across the globe. The History program is committed to preparing thoughtful citizens and productive members of a global society by embracing both broad and “deep” content knowledge, pedagogical innovation, and the use of technology.
