Why History at Viterbo?

The past is the cause of the present, and the present will be the cause of the future"

—A.  Lincoln

The study of history provides access to the whole world—past and present.  In our field, we attempt to understand this past in hopes of understanding the people and ourselves. We also work to understand the nature of change. It is an exciting journey that teaches widely applicable skills.

Our faculty are committed to working with students, guiding them through the wonders of the past, developing students critical thinking and communication skills through a wide variety of courses.  These skills provide students with many advantages in todays dynamic workplace.  Please take a look around our website and see what opportunities await you.
