CAREERS IN HISTORY, PHILOSOPHY AND POLITICAL SCIENCE
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. 
Courses in our department help prepare students for graduate study in history, law, urban planning and government, politics, criminal justice, and public or private administration.
