The study of history provides a framework within which the student can systematically investigate certain ideas, concepts, and trends which have characterized the collective experience and expression of mankind. This study can provide insights into our world and provoke thought for exploration. History helps provide a framework and an ordered sequence of events to aid the student’s understanding of the past, present, future and God’s works in history. History provides perspective and the accumulated experience of the past so essential to one’s personal enrichment and personal balance.
