Among the humanities disciplines, history is unique in the emphasis it places on interpreting human experience over place and time. Historians study the evolution of human beings and societies, emphasizing the importance of people’s choices, values, and actions. History provides indispensable background and the social and political context for other academic disciplines and branches of knowledge.
