|Field of Study:||
|Description:||History is the disciplined study of the past. Historical study explores a wide range of subjects, from political and social life to culture, technology, and thought. Historians establish and challenge interpretations of the past, examining new evidence and arguments to attempt to comprehend the relationship between ideas and actions, and between individuals and social institutions.
The aim of the undergraduate major and minor is to develop students' abilities to think critically about the past and to appreciate the contested nature of historical knowledge. Beyond comprehending chronologies or collecting names and dates, students in history courses learn how to analyze texts and documents; how to frame research questions and conduct independent inquiries; and how to organize and write historical analyses to make them engaging and persuasive.
