History and Political Science Research

The History and Political Science department encourages students to conduct original research in collaboration with faculty.

Students may:

  • propose their own research projects.
  • support the research of a faculty member in his or her area of academic interest.

Research projects that are approved in advance by the department and completed may count for academic credit.

In addition, all majors in the History and Political Science department are required to take a senior seminar in which they write a major research paper.
