About the History Department
The mission of the History, Criminal Justice, and Political Science Department is to guide students toward growth in their base of knowledge in political science, history, criminal justice, and the social sciences in general, that they may have the opportunity to walk wisely, guided by the foundational purpose of this University: a Christian perspective toward faith and learning.
The purpose of the Department’s majors is to ensure that students have access to the widest range of choices in career paths and academic concentrations without diluting the strength of the knowledge being imparted. The choice of majors also suggests the depth of course concentrations so that students can upon graduation choose to move forward to graduate education, professional schooling, or the job market.
