History & Social Sciences

A laboratory of human experience.

The History and Social Sciences Department offers a relevant, diverse, and challenging curriculum. When we study history, we are better able to grasp the forces that affect our own lives and better able to understand how the world really works. In doing so, our students gain a richer understanding of the stories and perspectives that have shaped, and continue to shape, our world.

Sample Courses

Beginning in our Humanities program, students explore major themes in history, learn about multiple perspectives and diverse experiences, and consider important issues involving social justice, sustainability, and global affairs. Our upper level courses include yearlong Advanced courses focused on the humanities, as well as a range of social science fields, including anthropology, political science, and psychology. In all our courses, we are committed to developing each student’s skills, particularly critical thinking, research and media literacy, written and oral communication, collaboration, and creativity.
