Department of History

The Department of History encourages students to:

  1. Have a solid understanding of, and interest in, U.S. and world history, and a sense of the complexities of human experience
  2. Read and write well
  3. Communicate publicly and participate in small teams
  4. Have some knowledge of doing research in a university library
  5. Discuss history on a general political, social, and moral level.

In addition, History Education majors should develop a sizeable repertoire of lessons, pedagogies, and approaches to history, which are appropriate for teaching at the secondary level.
