History is the record of the bygone events in human existence, with an inquiry into their causes and the lessons they afford human conduct. History looks at people, institutions, inventions, environment, sciences, and thought, weaving them together to develop a complex understanding of the past. Here at Michigan Tech, our strengths lie in looking at how humans develop, manipulate, and interact with environments, and we consider the social, economic, and political forces that gave rise to industrialization, as well as labor relations and the material culture of the built environment.
