Historical Knowledge and Inquiry

Area Objectives: History is a form of inquiry, critical thinking, and understanding that encompasses all aspects of human experience and illuminates how the past shapes the present and thus the future. Through these courses, students will explore historical and contemporary perspectives with a view to fashioning a humane and just world. Students will have the opportunity to examine a range of historical evidence in multiple forms such as documents, films, diaries, images, artifacts, empirical data, and oral and digital histories.
