Program Information

You will read published historians and documents from the past and develop the ability to assess historical evidence and conflicting interpretations, and gain a better understanding of why history is important and how learning about the past provides us with the background to compare our times and our concerns with those of people who lived before us.

CNM's History program helps students develop the skill of historical thinking. You will strengthen your abilities in critical analysis and effective communication as you evaluate primary and secondary sources that tell the story of the past.
