MODERN WORLD & THE US · GLOBALIZATION · INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS · RACE, CLASS & GENDER · DIASPORA · RESEARCH
The three-year curriculum begins with World History in the sophomore year and U.S. History in the junior year. Senior seminar classes are a culmination of those two years of survey coursework.
Learning history is essential to engaging with the world as it is and the world as we hope it can be. Analyzing sources from the past allows us to peel back the layers of myth-making, structural power, and multiple conflicting narratives to arrive at a deeper understanding for how history is made and historical narratives are constructed. Students working together to co-create these understandings build a practice of empathy for different histories and traditions, as well as a deeper understanding of their own worldview. Taken together, these skills of thinking, working, and communicating like an historian have the potential to name and disrupt systems of oppression.
