Beyond careful conveyance of salient content, departmental instruction aims to develop higher-order thinking, meaningful self-reflection, and understanding. Students should emerge from History and Philosophy courses with a deepened understanding of their own culture, as well as the culture and world views of others.

We encourage and value research that enhances teaching, expands the boundaries of scholarly understanding, and serves our communities and the public interest. We aim to foster student-faculty and interdepartmental dialogue and scholarship in the pursuit of both individual projects and collective knowledge, and we strive to be a community of mutually supportive scholars whose members share ideas and expertise with one another.
