Department Mission Statement


The mission of the Department of History & Government is to offer bachelor's degree programs in Political Science, History, and Social Studies Education, minors in Political Science, History, Geography, Philosophy, and the Humanities, and a broad array of required and elective general education courses.

We seek to engage energetically with students, faculty, and the public as inspired teachers and dedicated researchers committed to fostering scholarship, dialogue, and service across the Cameron University community, Lawton/Fort Sill, and Southwest Oklahoma.  While passionate about our individual disciplines, we also work at the intersection of the humanities and the social sciences, and bring critical perspectives from those fields to all facets of our academic life.  We welcome partnerships with anyone wishing to join us in these endeavors.
