Who are we, and where are we going? For the answers, the Department of History looks to the past to see where we came from. Below you’ll find chronicles of our History students, alumni and faculty, and you can contact us if you think you have a History story that should be published here. Students learn about the political, cultural, industrial and revolutionary movements that led to the rise and fall of civilizations across time. Their interest in uncovering the patterns and watershed breaks from tradition that shaped our world is encouraged by a passionate faculty eager to show them the past while preparing them for their future.
