Global History

The study of history is one foundation of a liberal arts education. Historical study is not the memorization of long lists of dates, names and places. It is an attempt to comprehend the past on its own terms, to consider the factors that lead to historical change, to enhance our understanding and appreciation of other cultures, to consider the human experience over time and place.
