Objectives and Vision


The mission of the Department of History at the University of Ghana is based on the belief that an understanding of history is essential not only to a complete education but also to a life of wider awareness, fulfillment and responsible citizenship. We seek to instill in students a passion for learning about the past to enable them gain a better understanding of the contemporary world and make connections to the future. The Department aims to be an open and welcoming site for a robust exchange of ideas and the encouragement of scholarly excellence.  We are committed to developing in students vital skills such as critical thinking, analysis, verbal expression, and effective writing.
