The Department of History and Political Science offers personal attention while preparing students for careers in government service, law, journalism, and teaching. It not only provides students with a solid foundation for graduate studies or law school, but also for a life of active citizenship.

In addition to the in-depth courses offered in history and political science, hands-on learning is highly encouraged. Depending on students' professional career goals, internship experiences at all levels of government or in the legal profession provide invaluable opportunities to learn and become involved in the daily operations of these organizations.
