History & Political Science

The program in history and political science offers pre-law advising, which is usually organized around a history major or a history/political science major, but may include minors or substantial course work in communications, English and business. Thus each student is guided trough a course of study tailored to meet his or her particular needs and which will maximize his or her chances of success in graduate studies. Following the counsel of graduate schools of law and practicing attorneys, the department has established a personal program for each student who plans to pursue graduate legal studies.

The mission of the program in history is to equip students to be competent in the field of history, responsible and compassionate leaders, and oriented toward service.


The Christian Student Leadership Conference is being offered Spring 2012!
