History, Political Science & Geography

History, political science, and geography deal with people and relationships in the historical, social, economic, political and psychological orders. The History Department desires to promote and to motivate an interest in historical knowledge and to explain the problems of the present in reference to their origins. The study of history is excellent preparation for careers in teaching, writing, government service, politics, law, foreign service, business, and public history institutions such as museums, libraries and archives.
