Centenary College’s History Program introduces students to the study of change over time. The program focuses on the meaning of change rather than memorization of names and dates, and it embraces the totality of human experience, including social and cultural developments as well as political events.
History majors develop strong critical thinking, analytical interpretation, and writing, a highly desired skillset in many professional fields and receive a solid grounding in World History and American History.
Historical exploration of a range of geographical and topical areas is included in the History Program. Among the areas are:
- African American Experience
- The History of New Jersey
- Tudor and Stuart England
- The Social History of Modern Europe and Modern Ireland
- Middle Eastern History
Centenary students majoring in other disciplines, such as Criminal Justice, Government, Education and Equine Studies, will find History electives that give them new perspectives on their primary field, including:
- the History of Ideas
- Issues in Environmental History
- Crime in England
