The Department of History and Political Science seeks to engage students and train them to be careful readers, creative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and clear communicators – all essential skills for success in contemporary life. History and Political Science students at ABAC have gone on to enjoy successful careers working in government affairs, the legal profession, multinational corporations, and much more.
The faculty of the History and Political Science departments are particularly excited to off courses in ABAC’s, and Georgia’s only, combined major in History and Government. Under this degree, students will take a balance of both History and Political Science courses to explore fundamental issues relating to race, political theory, international relations, economic development, violence, sexuality, political behavior, and more. A wide range of electives are also offered to enable students to tailor the degree to their specific career goals. The History and Government major has been designed to enable students to enter the workforce as critical thinkers and strong communicators or to prepare them for further studies at graduate or law school.
