History is at the core of a liberal arts education, illuminating the ideas, institutions, and sentiments by which people have attempted to order their world.

The St. Mary’s History Department exposes students to the richness of the diversity in the history of the human experience throughout the world.

In the course of their studies, students will develop a deeper understanding of themselves, their culture, and humanity in general.
