The special responsibility of historical studies is understanding the past. History courses integrate many branches of knowledge, cutting across the lines of the social sciences and the humanities, and even the natural sciences. Identifying forces of stability and processes of change, history students develop their research, writing and analytical skills, which serve them well beyond their university years.
