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.

Courses are offered at the campus and online, providing a rigorous classroom experience. The Department encourages learning outside the classroom through field trips, simulations, foreign travel and internships to enhance experiential learning.
