HISTORY

History examines the processes that have made today's realities. History is an evolving record of emotion, aspiration, frustration, and success. Historians deal with the goals, fears, interests, opinions, and prejudices of people in the past. What made people the way they were? What is the impact of their thought and action on people today and what is their impact on people tomorrow? As a study of people, history offers both a necessary understanding of one's place in the human experience and the conceptual framework for a lifelong avocation.
