Department of History

"History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again."  
Maya Angelou
Knowledge and awareness of history and society are important ingredients of a liberal education. The Department of History offers general courses for all students, a major and a minor in history, and preparation for students who plan to continue study at the graduate level, to teach history, or to enter related fields.
