History

http://www.whitworth.edu/history

The study of history is recognized as one of the critical experiences toward becoming a well-rounded person, an engaged citizen, and a competent professional in a number of fields. The study of the past offers a profound opportunity to understand more fully the individuals, forces and events that have shaped the world.

HistoryThe mission of the Whitworth Department of History is to provide an education of the mind and heart for undergraduate students through rigorous and sustained study in the discipline of history. The department seeks to exemplify the highest professional standards of historical study by providing excellent teaching, promoting scholarly research, and producing graduates who are competent to engage positively the communities in which they live and work. The department desires to graduate students who are not only conversant with the knowledge and skills associated with advanced study in the liberal arts, but who also seek justice and compassion born of a perspective based on a Christian foundation and sharpened by their study of history.

The learning outcomes of this major prepare the student to do the following:

  • Attain pre-professional skills in historical content, interpretation, geographical and statistical literacy, writing, reading and oral communication.
  • Develop a sense of historical-mindedness via cross-cultural and international opportunities, field experiences, and academic coursework.
  • Explore vocational opportunities in the field of history by connecting academic preparation to the world of work.
  • Achieve competence in addressing matters of faith, virtue and ethics within the discipline of history compassionately and consistently, emphasizing the importance of worldview thinking in the process.

A history degree prepares successful candidates for jobs and for graduate school in a broad range of disciplines, including some for which there are tests such as the Praxis (education certification), the LSAT (law school admission), and the GRE (required by most graduate schools in most fields). Majors are urged to speak with their advisors about online or other preparation for such tests.
