What is the study of History all about?

History as an academic discipline examines the past to explain how we got to where we are today. It is our collective memory.

You’ll also learn what ordinary people believed and valued―how they lived, worshipped, worked, fought and died.You’ll have the opportunity to take thematic and regional courses in Ancient, Medieval and Modern history from the geographic areas that shaped our world today.
