The study of history explores our shared and diverse past, providing an essential context and perspective on the contemporary world. Studying history enhances a student’s ability to think and reason, to communicate effectively, and to organize systematically, evaluate, and interpret information. These are essential skills demanded of today’s young professionals and graduate students.
