Department of History & Politics

Studying history or politics incorporates research, imagination, critical analysis, and the ability to organize information.

These skills are useful in a wide variety of real-world career opportunities, which makes coursework in this field an asset for students who pursue it.

About

Georgian Court University’s Department of History & Politics brings context and perspective into teaching history and politics. The renowned team of faculty guides you in understanding the past and present while motivating you to shape the future. Through interactive discussions and one-on-one interactions—not to mention stimulating fieldwork—graduates are equipped to succeed working at government agencies, organizations, educational institutions, historical sites, private companies, and more.

Cultivating students who are global thinkers and local doers creates lawyers, lobbyists, teachers, judges, and other productive leaders. That is the goal of our department, and we develop these leaders by implementing GCU’s Mercy core values in all we do.
