The study of history covers all recorded expressions of human activity: political, economic, social, cultural, intellectual. Because of its broad scope, history provides an exceptional introduction to all studies that concern human beings and their activities. Historians seek to understand the heritage of earlier generations and to understand the time in which we live. History focuses on the complex but essential issues of change over time.

The discipline of history demands and develops a broad perspective, analytical skills, and an ability to communicate with clarity and acumen. It is among the most useful disciplines because it enhances skills that can be beneficial in any vocational setting.
