Studying history provides access to the whole world; not just to
the past, but to the present that grew out of the past. The
study of history equips students with analytical skills and
research techniques of great practical value in both educational
and career settings. The program is designed to acquaint students
with different ages, societies and cultures, and to develop their
strengths in writing and thinking.
