About

The History program propels students into the dynamic history of the world. In addition to studying World Civilization, students progress through European, Non-Western, and American histories by delving into the narratives of each period. Though the study of History crosses many periods and locations, the present day is also an integral part of each student's experience at Limestone. This allows students to construct an understanding of how past and present connect and influence our understandings of the history of the world.
