From the Chairperson
The totality of human endeavors only becomes meaningful through the historical process. The History Department at QCC is an entity dedicated to the discovery, preservation, understanding and diffusion of historical knowledge. Our mission is pursued through a deep commitment to the education of our students and the engagement of our faculty in the field of scholarship. We firmly believe that the objectives of our 2500-year-old discipline can only be accomplished with the dual immersion of the historian in the classroom and the archives. That belief translates into a set of course offerings that provide the students with a wide selection of relevant topics and the faculty with the opportunity to bring their fields of expertise into the classroom.
The members of our department are devoted educators and accomplished scholars with a significant body of published work and meaningful involvement in the scholarly community.
