Department of History & Philosophy

In History, Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities, 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 Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities is a strong complement to a major in the sciences or health professions.
