The study of history lies at the foundation of a liberal education. It teaches crucial intellectual and analytical skills, and develops communicative abilities. It plays a key role in instilling curiosity and discernment, and in teaching people how not to be misled. Understanding the past allows us to better understand the present and to prepare intelligently for the future, and is especially important in an increasingly globalized and fast-changing world.
