History and Political Science

The History and Political Science Department supports the University mission of liberal arts education in providing scholarship, academic programs and extracurricular activities to help students better understand the diverse world in which they live, how that world developed and how to be effective and responsible citizens of that world. While all courses are taught on the Chicago campus, many classes will travel on field trips to historical locations to engage in a more immersive learning environment.

The department offers a range of programs that fit the needs of not only history and political science majors but also the needs of general education students and candidates for teacher licensure. The department offers majors in history, political science, international studies and social science education. It also offers minors in history, political science, international studies and public administration.
