History

Through our course offerings, the History Department attempts to provide the necessary balance between required survey courses and electives geared toward satisfying individual student preferences. In addition to basic texts, a wide range of readings and classroom activities are assigned. Visual aids are employed where appropriate. Through work in history and social studies, students learn to use a variety of sources, both primary and secondary, as a basis for lively classroom discussion and problem-oriented research. This approach provides valuable training in clear thinking, effective speaking and orderly writing.
