The department’s program is designed to provide students with a knowledge of their cultural traditions and of their world, past and present, and thus to prepare them for the responsibilities of citizenship in today’s complex society. Students take history courses to develop their skills in thinking, reading, writing and speaking; to understand the links between past, present and future; and to assist them in their search for personal identity.

The department welcomes non-majors in its courses. Few history courses have formal prerequisites.
