The members of the Department of History, Philosophy, and Political Science at Kingsborough Community College comprise a group of professional scholars and teachers who are dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and the education of students. The study of the liberal arts not only prepares students for understanding the world they live in, but also enables them to acquire valuable skills that are applicable to many careers. The ability to criticize, organize, and synthesize extensive materials and to write with clarity and precision are important qualities for success in a variety of jobs not directly related to our disciplines. Departmental courses may be taken by students at all developmental levels, and fulfill group requirements in two areas of the liberal arts, Group II and Group III.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about the department.

Dr. Karen Miller will be speaking on her new book, Managing Inequality: Northern Racial Liberalism in Interwar Detroit

"Managing Inequality is urgent historical reading. In our contemporary political culture, public officials regularly insist they are colorblind amidst evidence of persistent racial inequality. Karen Miller powerfully demonstrates that this 'colorblind' discourse emerged in the early 20th century among liberal politicians who wanted to maintain segregationist practices and structures but avoid charges of racism. Miller details the role Northern racial liberalism played in the creation of the modern unequal metropolis.  In the process, this book provides a much-needed lens on the situation Detroit and other cities face today."  —Jeanne Theoharis, Brooklyn College
