History Department: Our History
Sr. Virgilia established the Bachelor of Arts in History in 1986. The program offered both a major and minor in the field. Students were required to take history in order to fulfill their General Education requirements in the Social Sciences.
Sr. Virgilia and Dr. Rosa Lewis wrote the founding documents for the History program. They developed the curriculum and wrote all of the course descriptions.
Two political science courses and two economics courses (Macroeconomics and Microeconomics) were also approved. The Department of History administered all hour courses with the History faculty teaching the Political Sciences courses and the Business faculty teaching the economics courses.
