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.
