History

"History, if thoroughly comprehended, furnishes something of the experience which a man would acquire who should be a contemporary of all ages and a fellow citizen of all peoples." - Joseph Roux

The study of history provides an opportunity to better understand ourselves as individuals, families, citizens and members of a global community. In learning our individual and collective pasts, we not only celebrate out uniqueness but recognize what philosopher David Hume remarked as one of the greatest values of historical inquiry: "the discovering of the constant and universal principles of human nature." 

Consequently, regardless of when or where we look, the past is not as "foreign" or "unimportant" to us living in the present as we often think. Able to be taken in any order, our classes cover a broad range of historical eras, peoples, cultures, countries and civilizations.
