Department of History and Political Science

Whether you’re interested in the ancient world, medieval and European history, American studies, world history or even public history, you’ll find this is an exciting degree program with plenty of potential for academic and professional careers. Through course work and close cooperation with professors, students are challenged to consider issues of Christian faith and values within the process of understanding the past.

The History major offers students a wide range of courses in American, European and world history. This is the recommended degree for students who want to pursue a career in history or a related field. The major culminates with the History Capstone Seminar and a senior thesis. Beyond a solid academic base in the historical discipline, this degree program includes substantial opportunities for field experience that supplements coursework with practical knowledge that will last a lifetime.

The faculty at Grace College truly lived their lives in a way that allowed the light of Christ to shine through them. Grace College prepared me not only to teach in the classroom but to be a lifelong learner, especially in my spiritual walk.
