Department of History & Philosophy

In History, Philosophy and Liberal Studies, we strive to understand human existence. We explore the past and the present, and consider what the future might hold. As a student of these disciplines, you develop skills in clear thinking, effective argumentation, cogent interpretation, and persuasive written and spoken communication. Combining study of the humanities with these 21st century skills, a degree in History, Philosophy or Liberal Studies is a strong complement to a major in the sciences or health professions.
