Students of history at Kenyon come to a better understanding of the world by closely examining what men and women of the past have left behind.
Through engaged readings of texts, intensive discussions and substantive writing projects, history majors discern the amazing array of human experiences and their interconnections. As historians, students listen to the stories of those who have gone before them, and look at the pictures they have painted of their experiences. Students then begin to shape the narratives of their own lives and enrich their understanding of a complex world.
For history students, the past comes alive in individual and group projects designed to investigate, imagine and interpret the past. By writing and filming documentaries, staging simulations of elections, or creating a library exhibit on the history of baseball, students engage the past as a living, breathing reality that holds real meaning and the potential for clues to understanding contemporary life.
