From art and design to business and technology, history is a vast, shared cultural resource upon which all creative people draw. History is also the critical analysis of cause and effect over item, and it asks big questions, the kinds of questions all college students should get a chance to ponder. How did we invent capitalism and how does it work? Why do we live in a democracy and what are its limits? Have we always been so obsessed with our race, gender, and sexuality? As the powerful impose their will on the world, how have those with little power learned to win more? Historians use the past to study how people change the way the world works. Study history and you'll start seeing ways that you can change the world too.
