Traditional academic fields such as history and political science are more relevant today than ever before, as a degree in either of these disciplines can lead to a wide-ranging option of professions, including law, private business, government service, the armed forces and more. Learn about the possibilities during Cameron University’s “CU in History and Political Science,” a virtual workshop on Monday, April 11 at 5:30 p.m.

Faculty members from CU’s history and political science degree programs will join students majoring in these disciplines for an interactive exploration of what it means to be a historian or political scientist and the many career advantages associated with expertise in these fields.
“While many graduates in history or political science programs enjoy fulfilling careers in education or government service, there are many other career options,” says Dr. Lance Janda, chair of the Department of Social Sciences. “The curricula for these degree programs include coursework that teach students to read and write more effectively and to think critically — skills that allow graduates to pursue virtually any career.”
Cameron graduates in history and political science have gone on to law school, founded their own businesses, served in the armed forces and law enforcement, become consultants, and attended graduate school, in addition to entering a wide array of other career fields.
Cameron’s Bachelor of Arts in History degree program includes survey courses in US, Western European, and World History, plus research and writing classes and electives from a variety of time periods and regions of the world.
Political science majors at Cameron complete broad introductory courses in political theory, American government, and international relations, then move on to research and writing courses and electives that deal with national and international systems and governments.
