The history department of Dordt College seeks to develop and transmit insight into the processes which have shaped human civilizations, including both western civilization and other global civilizations, to equip students with various skills needed to discern such processes, and to interpret and use that discernment, and to articulate a Christian interpretation of the meaning and significance of history in the light of God’s Word and his coming kingdom.
