Students in the history program at Cumberland University will come away with an understanding of what history is and how historians practice it as a discipline; the differences among various peoples and cultures; an awareness of the past and its relevancy to the modern student; the role of human agency in determining the past; and the importance of cause and consequence in historical actions. Using primary and secondary source evidence, students will be required to think and write critically and logically about historic events and themes. The ultimate goal is for students to be able to analyze the past critically so that they become better-educated citizens in the present and future.
