The History Department at Moravian College


The program in history seeks to acquaint students with the nature of historical inquiry and the antiquity and variety of human experience. The study of the development of ideas and institutions in different eras and cultural areas helps students to broaden their understanding of humanity, to gain perspective on current issues, and to prepare for careers in teaching, public service, museums and historical restoration, library work, journalism, business and other fields as well as for graduate study in history, museum studies, law, theology, education and the social sciences.
