Mission Statement

The mission of Delgado's History department is to provide our students with an historical understanding of the major world cultures, how human societies change over time: in daily lives; through commerce; in response to crisis; and in interaction with other cultures.  In addition, history courses strive to put the present into context, and to cultivate students' intellectual curiosity.  Our students are introduced to the history of the modern world in courses that range from ancient to modern times, from the Far East to Louisiana, and with techniques drawn from the humanities and the social sciences.
