The History/Political Science program offers a B.A. degree (36 credit hours) with three concentrations that allow students to specialize in History, Political Science, or Law and Society. Our B.S. degree in History and Political Science Education meshes with the School of Education's B.S. in Secondary Education. The dual History/Political Science program provides students with depth as they explore different ways of thinking and potential careers. The Law and Society program teaches students to be active and aware citizens and provides them with the skills needed for a career in law. It divides the student's major classes into History/Political Science Foundation (so that they understand United States and international history and politics), Humanities Foundation (which requires classes focusing on communication, writing, and logic skills), and Law Specific (in which students take classes focused directly on legal issues in fields including Sociology, Criminal Justice, Labor Studies, and Business). All three programs include a required senior seminar in which students are expected to produce a significant piece of research and provides the opportunity for students to explore internships in the local community at historical societies, political organizations, and legal offices.
