Department of History

History as a category of human learning is one of the oldest subjects taught and learned in school. As a key to understanding human nature, the study of history distinguishes itself from other disciplines by its widespread subject matter, ranging from politics to warfare, from economics to morals. It is worth studying in its own right for what it contributes to self and societal identification and as an antidote to cultural ethnocentrism. It is also foundational to virtually every other discipline in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.
