The study of history helps us understand our place in time and to see ourselves as citizens of the world. It embodies the true spirit of the liberal arts, bridging the humanities, social sciences, and natural and behavioral sciences. This interdisciplinary nature makes history enriching to all majors and disciplines. History engages students directly with the experiences of people in the past, and in so doing, also helps to illuminate our present experience. Historians
