Where the Historical & Political Studies Concentration Will Take You
Grounded in history and political science, it’s a broadly based concentration that shares the traditional aims of a liberal arts and sciences education, and elements of international relations, all while attempting to come to grips with the origins and contemporary manifestations of major political and issues.
Students graduate with a keen ability to communicate ideas and concepts to a variety of audiences. They also participate hands on with research, presentations, and teamwork. They go on to work at foundations and in the nonprofit sphere, as educators, in marketing and retail, in politics, and as business leaders, among other pursuits.
Whether your interests lie more in entreprenurial politics, or you’re keen to study political science, you can take courses in law, economics, sociology, and philosophy alongside your business and other core requirements. If a polical science degree interests you, the historical and political studies concentration covers the basics and goes beyond.
With a selection of liberal arts courses to choose from, you develop critical thinking and elocutionary skills that are especially necessary for careers in law, politics, international relations, and teaching, as well as for those interested in going to graduate school.
