Department Chair: Kevin Johnson, PhD

Covering everything from philosophy and economics to history and international studies, the History, Global & Political Studies department helps students challenge assumptions, make connections, and apply historical knowledge to contemporary current issues.

The wide variety of disciplines and majors represented in the department are grounded in research, analysis, critical thinking, and truth-seeking. Through these values—as well as through practical learning in discussions, case studies, lectures, and simulations—students develop fresh insights and perspectives that join textbook knowledge with global realities and a Christian worldview.
