History Department Offerings Class of 2016 & 2017



The department of History & Social Sciences hopes to provide students with a strong foundation in knowledge and skills that will enable them to understand the political, economic, social and cultural forces that have helped shape our nation and our world.  To that end we believe it is important to foster the habits of mind and critical thinking skills that relate to the study of history so that our students can become critical thinkers, reflective learners, and informed problem solvers.  A strong emphasis is placed on close reading and analysis of primary and secondary sources, writing, and research in order to introduce students to the work of historians and to better equip them to be informed, responsible citizens.
