Mission

The Department of History, Philosophy, Religion, and Sociology brings together four disciplines which study human societies and ideas as part of the quest to understand the human condition, past and present, and grapple with the problems we face as a society and as humans. We seek to educate our students in each discipline through critical thinking on important problems, analysis of contemporary and historical texts and practices, and through social scientific investigation and inquiry. We seek to produce well-rounded global citizens, ready to face the challenges of career or study in the modern world with intelligence, fairness, thoughtfulness, an awareness of the past, and a desire for justice.
