The Department of History offers a broad-based program of study leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree in history. Specific goals of the undergraduate program include: (1) training the mind and imagination of those who study history; (2) introducing students to worlds, times, places, and cultures – including their own – in ways they have never before considered; and (3) promoting the acquisition of critical thinking, reading, and writing skills. A key component of instruction is three small-group research seminars required of every student. Upon successful completion of the undergraduate history major, students should be able to demonstrate competency in the vital skills of discernment and synthesis.
