Department of History and Political Science

Be a leader in policy and law

Do you want to change the future? Become a leader in policy and law? Understand the history that has shaped our world? Check out our programs in global studies, history, political science, pre-law and public policy. You have numerous options to customize your degree.

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. You might take a leadership role in student organizations such as Student Senate and the Pre-Law Society.

You can also participate in semester-length programs abroad or take one of our May Term courses.
