The Department of History offers an invigorating learning experience that challenges students to ask not just what happened, but why it happened. The past is not simply a list of facts to be memorized, but it is a mystery to be unveiled in much the same way a detective solves a tricky case. Our faculty is dedicated to helping students discover the complexity of the human story as it has developed across a diverse cultural and physical landscape over time.
Our faculty need your help to give our students the practical experiences that reach beyond just history textbooks and incorporate historical documents and real world accounts. Your gift, no matter the size, combined with others, will help the History Department provide an incomparable educational experience to our students. Your investment will help provide global learning opportunities for students and support historical archives.
