About History at Rollins

The history faculty at Rollins College believe that the study of history is central to acquiring a liberal education. First, it provides an introduction to all other liberal arts subjects. Second, by illuminating our past, the study of history provides us with a sense of continuity and moral purpose. When we come to understand that those of the past have prepared the way for our present, we begin to appreciate the responsibility we have for the generations that come after.
