An analysis of past complexities for a more comprehensible and purposeful present.

Explore the complexities of people and societies in the past to make the present more comprehensible. As a history major, you will thread your way through the humanities and social sciences across time and events to examine diverse societal values, challenges and their conclusions. Follow your curiosity and find your purpose with one-on-one interaction with historians and history makers, film and documentary studies, surveys of historic sites and internships.
