The History Department at UMass Lowell provides a broad introduction to civilizations of the past and present, including those of antiquity, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Students of history develop a grounding in the historical process and a greater empathy and special perspective for viewing human thought and action through a broad exposure to the complexities that shape the forces of civilization. Through the study of history, students recognize the distinctiveness of people and societies of the past, and acknowledge the threads that connect the experiences of these people over time.
