Liberal Arts History Major Handbook

History is a multi-dimensional field that historians and students have approached in myriad ways. At its core, though, history tackles fundamental questions of human society:

  • Who we have been in the past—how people lived, loved, governed, fought, and thought in various periods and societies.
  • The catalysts, negotiations, and conflict that provoked change in those societies.
  • How diverse societies came in contact and influenced one another.
  • How and why individuals and societies have exerted power over others.
  • How individuals and communities developed their sense of identity.
  • How that past continues to share our present.
  • And who we hope we will be in the future.
