Welcome to the Junior College History Department

History is the study of human beings in time, across time and in various places. It seeks to understand women and men in their settings in order to make sense of their lives and experiences. It is a cultural subject which when studied with an open mind, leads to one's enrichment and a better understanding of the present. In the words of the British historian David Thomson: "... the study of history [is] the best liberal education a student can have in the modern world."

It is not required to have a SEC pass, though a knowledge of the subject is helpful. At the same time, those in possession of a SEC pass in history need to realize that a strong qualitative leap is required when studying at an advanced or intermediate level. Over the course of two years, students are expected to develop their studying and writing skills to attain the requisite level. This is achieved through regular attendance for tuition and through individual work on the part of the student.


We look forward to welcoming you as a student of the Department of History!
