The Department of History is dedicated to stimulating engagement with the past, promoting independent and creative thinking, and fostering a systematic and rigorous approach to historical knowledge and understanding.  The department's primary mission is to inspire students to contemplate history in all of its richness, complexity and diversity. In the process, students are encouraged to contemplate their own place and responsibilities as citizens in a dynamic and interdependent world.  In pursuit of this objective, the department seeks to cultivate constructive and lively interaction between students and a faculty committed to both teaching and research.
