Harvard-Westlake’s history courses empower students to understand our complex world through a rigorous study of the past. Students read a variety of sources and historiography and are encouraged to confront differing perspectives and points of view. Students will also develop their skills of analytical reading, critical writing, oral presentation, and research using print and digital media. They graduate as lifelong learners in the discipline, equipped with the skills of critical thinking and with a deeper appreciation and understanding of the modern world.
