HISTORY DEPARTMENT MISSION STATEMENT
History at SUNY Fredonia embraces more than the study of the past. A diverse faculty engaged in innovative scholarship provide students with the skills to analyze historical events, as well as the tools to apply that knowledge to understand the contemporary world and to plan for the future. History is by nature cross-cultural, international, and interdisciplinary. Fredonia history and social studies majors learn to connect the present and the past, the local and the global; to create and communicate new knowledge through their research and writing; and to engage constructively with their profession, their communities, and the world.
THE POWER OF HISTORY
Faculty in the SUNY Fredonia Department of History strive to inform students about the past, and through its lens provide them with lifelong tools to learn, analyze, and communicate as they engage in a diverse and changing world. These tools have universal value in every career, every place, and every relationship. History is a core discipline of the liberal arts: its subject is the totality of recorded human experience; its methods draw upon the fields of the humanities and sciences; it informs every element of our lives.
