Bachelor of Arts in Political Science
The History and Political Science Department offers students a B.A. in political science. History and political science are closely related disciplines that use the past to understand the present and the future. The program mission is to encourage literate, critical thinking by students, who work with faculty engaged in diverse, broadly based scholarships. The faculty strives to mentor and develop students as they build character and careers.
Political science is a highly prescribed discipline. It limits its interests to the political aspects of human behavior, both national and international, including the study of power and organizations. We offer four concentrations: general political science, public policy, campaign management and pre-law, as well as minors in political science and pre-law.
