To foster this dialogue, History courses encourage students to ask questions, explore answers, and formulate and test theories in an environment promoting open-mindedness and diversity of thought. Using the Core Skills, students become accomplished in the principles of deductive and inductive thought, experienced essay and creative writers, and life-long readers. In addition, students become competent analysts of maps, graphs, tables, primary and secondary sources, and point of view. 

Upper level courses in History allow students to become specialists in concentrated areas. Students become acquainted with major theories in their specific concentration and use the historian’s tools to test and apply those theories in new situations. Some of these tools include the use of primary and secondary sources, statistical analysis, and research techniques.
