Summary

The Economics, History, and Political Sciences Department offers students a choice of three academically distinct but interrelated majors—economics, history, and political science—and a range of associated minors. Students gain the academic background and research capabilities for both graduate study and immediate entry into a variety of career fields, including secondary school teaching. In addition, the department offers graduate degrees in the field of history.

Focused field training experiences and national-internationally focused extra-curricular initiatives enhance what is learned in the classroom and broaden students’ career options.
