Origins and Influences Pathway
Coordinator: Gipson Cima
"Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." –George Santayana
"You don't know where you're going until you know where you've been." –English Proverb
Our past shapes everything about our current world – language, culture, politics and traditions, to name a few. That also means our current society sets a path for our future. To really understand who we are and where we're going, we have to understand who we were and where we came from. You'll take a long view of our past, reaching back to the beginning of our planet and the development of humans as a species. At the same time, you'll examine current issues like race, gender and sexuality in our society.
