History, Political Science, and Geography courses explore the decisions and actions of people to better understand past choices, present circumstances, and future possibilities. Studying history, political science, and geography will enhance a student’s ability to think and reason, to communicate effectively, and to organize, evaluate, and interpret information. The department offers classes that specialize in a country or region, a specific time period, or a particular area of study.
History and Political Science classes also fulfill a state-mandated constitution competency requirement. Students who complete the courses will possess the academic knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in any professional or collegiate environment.
