1 history (his) Mark R. Correll, Chair Mark T. Edwards David Rawson Charles E. White The fundamental purpose of the department of history, politics, and geography is to aid the student in gaining an understanding of the development of ancient, medieval and modern civilizations, as they compare developments in the United States and Michigan with the multicultural aspects of past as well as contemporary societies.

Insights from various Christian perspectives will be utilized as the past is examined so that students will be challenged to become effective citizens of the church, community, country and the world.
