The Department of History and Political Science
Welcome to the Department of History and Political Science! I am proud to be the Department Head of such an outstanding academic department, and I invite you to take a closer look at our outstanding faculty, our broad selection of courses, and the many opportunities we offer for learning outside the traditional classroom setting.
We have a lot to offer you, whether you plan to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in History, Political Science, or Social Studies Education; a Master of Arts in History; an undergraduate minor in African-American Studies, History, International Relations, Philosophy, Political Science, or Public History; satisfy general education requirements for a degree in another discipline; or take elective courses for your own personal enrichment.
Many of our faculty members have national reputations for their scholarship, yet you will find them all to be accessible and down-to-earth. Our office staff members are friendly and helpful. Our classes are relatively small in size and are dynamic in character.
Our many extracurricular and outreach programs are both educational and entertaining. And most importantly, our graduates are successful in a broad variety of occupations - as lawyers, public officials, university professors, schoolteachers, business people, and in many other fields. To find out more about us, just follow the links on this website or e-mail HIPS@selu.edu or call 985-549-2109.
