“One of the great things about History is that it sort of isn’t a done deal - ever. The historical texts and the historical evidence that you use is always somehow giving you different answers because you’re asking it different questions.” Mary Beard
In the History Department, our intent is to foster a deep understanding and appreciation for the rich tapestry of human history. Through rigorous research, critical analysis, and engaging narratives, we aim to empower students with the knowledge and skills to comprehend the complexities of the past, unravel its impact on the present, and envision a more informed and enlightened future.
Our department is dedicated to cultivating lifelong learners who embrace the power of history to inspire curiosity, empathy, and informed decision-making in a rapidly evolving world.
The intent of geography at Laurel Park is to provide students with essential and transferable skills to deal with, and understand, the rapidly changing world in which they will be living. The world is increasingly interconnected, with large scale economic movements and migration across the globe, and within the country.
