|Welcome to the Department of History
The Department of History offers the Bachelor of Arts degree and the Master of Arts degree in history. The programs are designed to give students insight into the world in which they live and into the forces and events that have shaped and molded that world.

The analytical study of history provides an understanding of “why we are what we are” and “how we came to be where we are today.” Read More
