The Department of History, Philosophy, Religion and Sociology brings together four disciplines that 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.
Faculty share a mission to educate 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.
The critical thinking and communication skills that department graduates have gained have led them a wide variety of professional careers and graduate study.
100 percent of recent department alumni are employed or in graduate school within one year of graduation. Read more about our alumni outcomes.
Upon successfully completing the program, majors should be able to perform all of the following tasks. Minors and students who take individual courses should be able to perform selected goals, depending on their coursework.
