Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it. Much more than learning dates, history can teach us how to achieve our own goals. Studying great leaders (and not-so-great ones) we learn how their decisions lead to triumph or ruin. On a larger level, we can see what events and decisions have historically lead countries to peace—or to war—and be able to see similar patterns in current events. History is a rich library of winning and failed strategies for success at all levels, and knowledge of these strategies is a powerful tool for your own achievement.
Trinity students study history as a major, minor, or as core or elected courses.
