History Department

Department Philosophy

Studying history broadens our view of society, past and present. Students at Jesuit develop an understanding of the historical events that affect our lives; a deeper appreciation of peoples and their cultures; a problem-solving approach that reflects critical analysis and historical perspective; and an awareness of values.
