A 2021 study concluded that a liberal arts education "is what will best equip students with the adaptability and fortitude to navigate the road ahead." (Lynn Pasquerella, President, Association of American Colleges and Universities) To master an academic methodology that allows you to think critically about the past and analyze the political problems of the contemporary world. To wrestle with the complex questions of "how" and "why" changes in the human experience occur over time. To embark on an intellectual endeavor that provides depth and breadth to your courses in other disciplines and is crucial to a liberal arts education. The study of history offers the largest comparative framework possible: all human societies over all time. More importantly, historical inquiry foregrounds the actual complexity of the human experience without the restrictive theories favored in much of the Social Sciences.
