Historians interpret human experiences, achievements, and shortcomings. An understanding of the past is essential for the truly liberal education. History encompasses the growth of political organizations; the development of economic, social, and religious institutions; and the course of literary, cultural, and intellectual movements. Specialization in history illuminates the origins of our present world and prepares the student with research, writing, and analytical skills.
