History lives in the classrooms of Monmouth
Bringing the past to life means understanding historical
causes and their effects, investigating change and continuity
over time, and assessing how the past continues to shape who
we are as a nation and as a world. History is a crucial part
of every liberal arts education, because the study of history
involves an investigation of the human condition from every
continent and every era. Historical study broadens horizons,
enables comparisons, and creates more informed citizens.
The Monmouth College History Department invites students to
learn how to connect the present with the past. In our
classrooms we emphasize critical reading for the nuances in
the historical record; thoughtful and absorbing research in
primary and secondary sources; and careful, clear writing. Our
professors are passionate about the history they study and
teach, and their enthusiasm is infectious.
Our graduates go off to many fields: all levels of
education, law, public service, archival and library sciences,
and any professional job that prizes the ability to conduct
research, analyze data, and write well.
