The history/political science major offers students a foundation in two disciplines that study the institutions, the processes, the people, and the ideas and cultures that have shaped the United States and other countries. The study of history and political science develops insight into current affairs and into the possibilities and limitations of individual and public action.
The major prepares students for careers in journalism, teaching, or government service and for graduate study in business, history, law, political science, public policy, international affairs, and public administration.
Secondary teacher certification in social studies is available with the BA degree in history/political science.
