History and Political Science
Our students are the kind that want to help shape public policy and diplomatic efforts, see the world and make a global impact, or use what’s happened before to influence how we approach future decisions.
A global perspective comes standard here. You’ll have ample opportunity to study abroad — we offer mini-mesters and full semester options that will give you a life-changing, impossible-to-forget learning experience in another country. We’ve sent students to nearly 50 countries. Combine that with intensive studies of governments around the world, and you’ll come out with a more thorough understanding of how the world works than you thought possible. And with our pre-law studies/legal studies minor, you can prepare for the rigors of law school — it’s all right here, at the perfect academic intersection of history and political science.
