Weissman School of Arts and Sciences

New research, new data, and new interpretations of past events make history a dynamic discipline filled with combative scholars and lively teachers. Courses in history offer opportunities for students to explore, imagine, interpret, understand, and discuss the contexts and meanings of human experience in such wide-ranging areas as business, medicine, economics, politics, religion, culture, gender, race, art, theatre, ethnicity, and urban affairs. The department is particularly dedicated to teaching how societies change over time: in daily lives; through commerce; in response to crisis; and in interaction with other cultures.
