Today the study of human history is critical to global survival; the experiences of others serve as guides to present and future conduct. 

At the same time, exposure to rigorous historical method and clear narrative style develops conceptual skills, research competence, writing fluency, and sensitivity to the uses and abuses of language and historical knowledge. 

Key facts:

There are two pathways through the History major of Colgate University: The Field of Focus (FoF) Pathway and the Global Pathway. Both require nine courses.
