Mission Statement

The goals and philosophy of the Department of History are designed to support the primary mission of Bronx Community College. As stated in the College Catalog, that mission is "to give our students the foundation and tools for success, whether they choose to continue their education and/or enter a profession immediately upon graduation and to instill in them the value of informed and engaged citizenship and service to their communities." (Bronx Community College Catalog, 2009-2010, p. 1)

Course offerings in the History Department contribute both to Liberal Arts Transfer curricula and to Career Programs. In all classes and curricula, we understand our goal to be to teach with a commitment to the values of a broad liberal arts education, and to the goal of preparing students for life in an open-and often contentious-democratic society. Through all of our course offerings and programs, the Department seeks to educate its students to enter the 21st century equipped to deal with its many complexities, both imagined and unforeseen.
