History courses at TSC provide students with an essential foundation for producing complex understandings of the past and the systems of power and inequality that continue to impact our homes and communities. The faculty uses interdisciplinary and conceptual approaches that help students acquire knowledge, including collaborative group work, service-learning and social justice projects, and informed, critical analysis of historical texts. Courses empower students to perform professional-level work necessary for higher-level academic degrees, prepare for 21st-century career pathway opportunities, and function effectively as informed citizens in a diverse, multicultural society.
