“I chose history to better understand the world today. I had to learn history to begin to understand the processes that shape the societies we live in, and how those societies shape us.”
“The UTC History Department gives its students the skills and information necessary not just to simply pass classes, but to independently grow their interests long after a semester ends. … My passion for history has only grown at UTC, and I appreciate the context, empathy, and opportunities for growth and achievement that I have been provided.”
“To say that I couldn’t be where I am today without the direction and encouragement of the UTC History Department is an understatement. The faculty here do not just love what they do, they love elevating their students so that their students can experience all the wonders of their discipline, too. Studying history at UTC has changed the world as I knew it.”
“The UTC History department and staff have been nothing short of miracle workers with how effective their tutelage and patience has been in recovering my love for learning, and love for history as well.”
“Without learning about where we came from, we cannot truly know our selves. … History is going to be something I use and apply for the rest of my life.”
