History - Program Requirements

Home > Arts > History > Program Requirements

History helps to put humanity’s life and times into perspective. Understanding the past is crucial for a sense of identity. This discipline allows students the opportunity to explore the people, places, and ideas of the past. Students will learn specific life skills such as how to ask the right questions, how to find answers, how to think logically, and how to write and express oneself with precision and imagination. The overarching purpose of the History program is to introduce students to the rise of the West within the world context and to introduce students to the symbiotic relationship among world cultures. History graduates will be oriented toward careers in teaching, research, law, politics, heritage preservation, journalism, and ministry.
