History

The History curriculum is designed to help students to reach three goals.

First, students become familiar with history as a discipline. Students learn to support historical generalizations of their own making through the use of a variety of sources, from print to electronic and from photographs to interviews.

Second, students are encouraged to develop an appreciation for the variety of human experience. Their studies enable them to learn that the complexity of the contemporary world results from diverse cultural and historical perspectives.

Third, students are taught to develop a balanced and enlightened understanding of the place of the United States in global history.
