History

History is the study of past. By studying history, students learn about how the events of the past have led us to the present day. Through studying the culture, economics, and events of yesteryear through primary research, critical analysis, and the writing of scholarly research papers, students of history will become assets in both the private and public sectors because they have developed skills as both writers and critical thinkers.
