About Our Department

History, Political Science, and Philosophy

A degree in History or Political Science prepares you for success in this fast-paced and changing world.

These majors will give you the flexibility you need to thrive in a world where you will work an average of eleven jobs over the course of your life, and will change career fields several times.

Whether you major, minor, or take one only course, you will walk away better prepared to be a global citizen, who can make a difference in a rapidly changing world.

Our students learn in a personal environment:

  • small courses
  • independent studies
  • one on one research opportunities with our faculty
  • internships with a variety of non-profits and companies

Learn to:

  • read critically
  • think analytically
  • write compellingly
  • speak convincingly
