The history and political science department prepares you for a life of active citizenship and intellectual engagement. In your classes you’ll engage in discussion, reflection, simulations, problem-based learning and collaborative research with faculty and your fellow students. Outside the classroom you’ll have opportunities for experiential learning, such as internships and travel.
