Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in History

We study the past to gain insight for living in our present. At the collegiate level, studying history comprises much more than memorizing names or dates. Historians examine change over time and are most interested in questions that ask 'why' or 'how.' These questions demand complex answers about who we are and how we have come to be where we are.
