History Faculty

Studying the past has the intrinsic value of stretching the imagination and satisfying our curiosity about ourselves. At the same time, the study of history builds skills and knowledge that are indispensable for any career: research; writing and speaking; effective use of evidence and argument; critical awareness of alternatives and the consequences of choice; comprehension of how different cultures and eras have attempted to reconcile individuality and commonweal, material and spiritual values, war and peace.

History provides excellent preparation for students who plan to enter law, business and international commerce, government service, or graduate study in various fields.
