"Learning Outcomes" are a kind of promise made by the department to its students. By the time they complete their degree at Marquette University, history majors will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of the discipline of history, in particular the application of historical methodologies in the formulation of plausible interpretations of human behavior in past centuries.
- Demonstrate an understanding of how societies develop over centuries through the complex interaction of socio-economic, political, religious, and other cultural forces including historical memories constructed by successive generations.
- Demonstrate an understanding of continuities and differences between the past and the present.
