About the Program

History is an evolving record of human emotions, human aspirations, and human successes and failures. Historians deal with goals, fears, interests, and prejudices of people in the past and the impact of their thoughts and actions on the people of today and tomorrow. The study of history is a valuable adjunct for many careers both inside and outside of the social sciences.
