Exciting developments are underway in the History & Political Science Department. One change that you will notice immediately is our name change: the History & Government Department is now the History & Political Science Department. Departmental faculty members have been discussing a name change for several years, and we think the new name will help to convey our focus more effectively. The "rubrics" used to designate our classes will be changing as well: GVT is changing to PSC (for Political Science courses), and HIS is changing to HST (for History courses). Courses designated as HG will become HP, and our oldest major, History & Government (and the specializations--HG-Adolescent Education and HG-Environmental Specialization), will also be renamed as History & Political Science (and HP-Adolescent Education and HP-Environmental Specialization).
As you can see from the stories posted below, our students, alumni, and faculty have much to report. Please contact our Contributors (listed on the right side of your screen) if you have news that you would like to share.
