The strength of the History concentration lies in the diversity of paths that historical inquiry allows you to pursue. Historians study politics and government; gender and sexuality; diplomacy and international relations; finance and economics; religion and philosophy; literature and arts; cultural and social changes and exchanges; archaeology, anthropology, and science and technology. A rigorous, shared methodology unites historians no matter which subject they study. This methodology entails the close analysis of primary sources in dialogue with existing scholarship and current events, and the exchange of ideas across a variety of media, from academic journals to mainstream news, and from documentaries to public talks. Furthermore, all historians acknowledge that History is more than just learned knowledge about the past. History empowers you to understand the contradictions and delights of our contemporary world as products of longer processes with origins in past decades and centuries, sometimes even in past millennia.
History is offered as both a concentration and a secondary field.
