The study of history educates students to become global citizens engaged with the world around them and sensitive to our ties to the past, as students cultivate an understanding of both familiar and unfamiliar pasts and cultures in all their complexity. Historical perspective provides insight into the sequence of events, into the interconnections among peoples and societies, into the relationship among events at diverse times and places, and into the dynamism of structures and beliefs that can otherwise appear natural, fixed, or predetermined.
