The History and Political Thought major strives to equip you to “see life steadily and see it whole.” The interdisciplinary nature of the courses required for this major focus on the human experience across time and space by studying the lives and ideas of individuals and examining the ethos and character of societies. 我们所有的问题都围绕着人类的基本问题“我应该相信什么??", "How should I be governed?、“社会平等的本质是什么??"

Political Science vs. Political Thought

你可能想知道为什么我们没有现在常见的名字“政治学”," but rather "political thought.“这是因为,在古典传统中,我们认为政治涵盖了生活的方方面面.

如果你觉得你最终可能有兴趣去法学院, this degree will serve you well with a broad introduction to historical and political foundations. With this background, you will be well-equipped to learn the vocational and practical (the "scientific") aspects of the political and legal system.
