The History Department, and its individual majors, engage students in the systematic study and interpretation of the recorded human past, thereby promoting lifelong learners who have a clearer focus on the impact of the past on the contemporary world. By understanding historical legacies, students are better prepared to minister the love and truth of Jesus Christ in redemptive ways to the world in which they live.
In its curricular activities, the history department aspires to:
- Enable students to understand both the “what” and “why” of major historical events and issues.
- Equip students with essential research and analytical skills that they can use to identify historical questions and make sense of the historical record
- Awaken in students an appreciation for the historical contexts of ever-changing domestic and international issues including legacies of injustice and intolerance.
- Encourage students to apply their historical knowledge and analytical skills in order to serve their localities, the broader Christian community and the world at large.
