At Southwestern, our students are encouraged to not only learn about history, but to actively shape and define it. With a highly interactive curriculum supported by exceptionally engaging professors, students develop their critical thinking through tools and practice that ready them for all walks of life. Our courses are designed to help develop a broad and applicable understanding of the sweep and span of the globe’s historical, cultural, and governmental realities. We shed new light on the world’s current events by studying its origins in history, politics, and society, granting students the ability to not only anticipate what may come, but influence the outcome.
