The Department of History and Political Science prepares students to use the disciplines of history, political science, pre-law, and international studies as analytical tools to understand the dynamics of today’s ever-changing and complex society.
Courses in American history, Latin America, Europe, Africa, political science, and church history, along with student-teacher interaction, will provide ethical values and a knowledge base that will meet the department’s purpose. The course offerings provide graduates with the skills needed to be competitive in graduate school, law school, and research. The knowledge gleaned from the courses taught in the department will promote a sound academic background and both spiritual and moral values. In addition, the student will learn to appreciate the diversity of a growing multicultural global society.
