The Department of History and Political Thought
The History and Political Thought Department endeavors to equip students to “see life steadily and see it whole.” The interdisciplinary nature of the courses required for this major attempts to look at the human experience both communally and individually as well as in both the past and present. The courses are approached from the liberal arts tradition of learning for the sake of learning and within the tradition of the humanities using great texts and looking at the “best of what has been thought and said”. The courses cover a broad range of topics, generally include the primary works particular to the course subject, and have rigorous reading and writing expectations. The graduate of Concordia University with this major will not only have a mind well filled, but well trained.
