About the Major
The History, Political Science and International Studies Department endeavors to equip students to "see life steadily and see it whole." The interdisciplinary nature of the courses required for these majors attempts to look at the human experience both communally and individually and in both the past and present. All three majors are approached from the liberal arts tradition of learning for the sake of learning. The courses cover a broad range of topics, generally include the works particular to the course subject, and have rigorous reading and writing expectations. The graduate of Concordia University with one of these majors will not only have a mind well filled, but well trained.
