The department places special emphasis in the development of diverse ideas within the historical,political, and legal realm and furthers students' understanding of the world through the development and enhancement of critical thinking skills. 

The Department of History, Politics & Justice offers separate majors in history, political science, criminal justice, international studies, and social studies. Minors in Public History/Museum Studies, Geography/GIS, an option in Forensic Science, and an Archaeological Field School are also available. To pursue a dual major or a major and minor, students must complete all the requirements for each separate major and minor. There are special departmental advisors for prelaw and teacher licensure.
