Welcome to the History Department

The Department of History supports the primary mission of Bronx Community College to provide students academic foundations and skills for their educational and professional futures and to encourage students to value informed civic engagement. Our Faculty teach courses in history, geography, and philosophy that contribute both to transfer curricula and to career programs. We are committed to fostering critical thinking, a broad liberal arts education, and preparing students to engage with life within diverse, democratic societies and globalized communities.​
