Bachelor's Degree in History
History is the systematic inquiry into the past in order to deepen understanding of the human experience and to make the present more intelligible. In assessing the unique perspective of the present, historical study focuses on a critical examination of social, economic, political, intellectual, religious, and cultural dimensions of the human experience as perceived at specific times and places.
The History program at HNU offers a variety of current methodologies, including the recent fusion of gender studies with cultural, social, and anthropological history. The major includes area studies of Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin and Central America, Africa, and the United States. There are also three experiential courses to choose from: African American Communities and Experiences, Latino/Hispanic Communities and Experiences, and Asian American Communities and Experiences. The major culminates in a senior seminar in Historiography and Historical Methodology.
