Literature and History

Literature and History majors develop an appreciation of pivotal moments in history and their impact on cultures worldwide. This interdisciplinary program showcases the dynamic relationship between these two vitally important fields of study. Students perform research in the humanities while learning how to shape their own research projects, culminating in senior theses.

“Literature and History allow students to make sense of the world and the human experience, establish a sense of connection to their ancestors and contemporaries, and develop a capacity for perspective, empathy, and understanding.”
