To understand the present – and prepare for the future – you must first know the past. At Lander, we’ll take you on a journey through history and philosophy, guiding you through a rich tapestry of cultures, civilizations, movements and ideas.

You’ll quickly be drawn into a department that is a small community of teachers and learners. You’ll interact with historians and philosophers who hold doctoral degrees from top universities in the nation. They are researchers, authors, Fulbright scholars, and award winners; however, they view themselves foremost as teachers. They enjoy interactive instruction through small classes, maintain open office hours and mentor students through programs that foster cultural awareness and intellectual development.

At Lander, you can expand your awareness of the history around and within you, while reflecting upon the human condition through time.
