The mission of the department of History, Government, and Social Science is to foster a community of learners who, as lovers of truth, study history, political science, and geography. In recognition of both the dignity and depravity of humankind, our aim is to develop insight into past and present civilizations based upon our acknowledgement of God's providence, the dependability of his promises, and his redemptive purpose on earth. Through the rigors of our disciplines, we prepare our students to influence and transform the world for Jesus Christ through their lives and vocations in obedience to the Greatest Commandment and the Great Commission.
The History Department seeks to produce graduates who are aware of the religious, social, and economic forces that are shaping our world by offering a wide range of history classes that offer students a variety of intellectual and methodological tools.
There are no special admission requirements for the History major.
