College of Humanities & Social Sciences



Every student will meet basic standards which include insights into cultures and problems of civilizations; the whole and the interaction of the parts; an understanding of human groupings—countries, religions and civilizations—which have generated the emotions, symbols, and values of contemporary life; and a working knowledge of complex causes of the rise and fall of societies as well as of the underlying realities of leadership, social class and power. History graduates will encourage and inspire tolerance and mutual understanding as responsible and responsive members of a civic belief structure.
