 Our Vision:

The department of history strives to better understand the common elements and the range of diversity among human societies. We do this by learning to listen to people from times and or places different from our own. As we become more familiar with the world as others have experienced it, we are better able to ask good questions, view events from multiple perspectives, and analyze changes and continuities in human communities across time and place.
