Bachelor of Arts
A strong understanding of history is important when approaching the challenges and opportunities we face in the United States and around the world.
History encompasses the entirety of the human experience, ranging from family intimacies to workplace dynamics, from the building of communities to the formation of nation states, from global climate change to intercontinental pandemics, from acts of faith to scientific discovery. This field of study contributes to the pursuit of knowledge in almost every field of scholarship and provides an important nexus for interdisciplinary research across the arts, humanities and sciences.
