In the History and Political Science department, faculty and students explore questions that integrate their Christian faith with their course content. For example,
- Why was the Protestant Reformation such an important moment in the history of the world?
- How did the 19th and 20th century social reformers in the United Stated use their grounding in Biblical mandates about justice, peacemaking, compassion, and mercy to challenge America to be a great nation committed to equality and "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" for all Americans.
- What role has the Christian tradition played in shaping the United States' political culture and values?
- How do you reconcile your political views with your faith?
