The Department of History, Philosphy and Political Science two history degrees: a B.A. in History, and a B.S.E. in Social Studies/History. We offer minors in history, political science, international studies, and environmental studies.

The past is a living, dynamic subject and very much a part of today. This program in the humanities provides a solid background in the methods and concepts of historical investigation and introduces students to the various schools of historical interpretation. It includes courses in American, European, and Third World history, as well as a wide variety of arts and sciences courses. The research and writing skills developed in this program open opportunities in many areas. History is excellent preparation for law school. Combined with the appropriate courses, it provides a good background for journalism. Producers of television shows, documentaries, and movies, with settings in the past, all have research staffs to insure historically accurate productions. History graduates work in such diverse careers as editing publications, archival management, foreign service, and museums.
