About History/Political Science

Imagine spending a semester in Washington D.C. as an intern in the White House…or analyzing the actual recordings of Thomas Edison and conducting research on the persons and events described in them. If you’re interested in politics, world affairs, and history, consider a combined degree in history and political science. You’ll learn about events of the past from ancient China to contemporary America, as well as the philosophical and practical problems of political organization, collective action, and governance in the modern world. The joint major is an integrated program consisting of 45 credit hours from the combined disciplines. This program provides excellent preparation for many professional careers in a variety of fields, including business, government, law, education, finance, and international affairs. This program takes into consideration the specific needs of adult and nontraditional students and University College-New Brunswick endorses it as an adult-friendly & working-professional program.
