Program Description

To function in a particular society or in an international setting, it is crucial to gain an accurate historical understanding of a present situation or past event through the study of history. The study of history involves verifying events and ideas, exploring the causes and effects of events and ideas, reconciling various interpretations of them, and making informed judgments about how to utilize differing views to assert a conclusion. In addition, it is essential that the historical reasoning process be expressed in a clear and effective style of written communication.
