History, Politics, and International Relations

You are here

HistoryThere are two dominant features of the History, Politics, and  International Relations program. First, the program moves students through a carefully considered sequence of required core courses.

Successive courses help strengthen your intellectual skills as well as help you develop empirical knowledge about different historical periods and various national and international issues. In your senior capstone experience, you will define a research project, conduct research, and write a substantial thesis.

Second, our faculty believe strongly in the value of independent research, study abroad, and first-rate internships as transformative experiences for undergraduates.

In recent years, our students have studied in Germany, Austria, England, and Greece. They have held internships at local law offices, the Office of the Chester County Commissioners, the Juvenile Parole Office of Chester County, the Valley Forge National Historical Park, the Foreign Policy Research Institute, the Archaeological Museum of the University of Pennsylvania, the Narcotics Division of the Office of the District Attorney in Philadelphia, and the Smithsonian Institution.
