School of Natural & Social Sciences


History, Politics, and Geography


The Department of History, Politics, and Geography is located in Connell Hall at the heart of the Wayne State College campus. Connell Hall recently underwent a complete renovation and now features bright and modern classrooms, two state-of-the-art computer labs, and a Computer Mapping/GIS classroom.


The program areas in our department serve to provide students with a solid liberal arts education while preparing them for a wide variety of careers. Undergraduates who select our disciplines for study go on to pursue occupations ranging from teaching to public service to government employment. Many of our majors have successfully sought out further education in graduate or professional schools.


Our faculty offer interesting and timely courses dealing with the understanding of how humans have come to develop the surface of our planet, the history of that development, and the ways in which people govern themselves today. In class, we keep the student/faculty ratios low and our commitment high when it comes to addressing the educational needs of the current generation.


The interdisciplinary nature of our subject matter allows for convenient overlap among topics and opportunities for inquiry by means of different points of view. In addition, our faculty work closely with the School of Education in training teachers and we also collaborate with other departments in team-teaching courses. Finally, we support a diverse range of clubs, honorary societies, guest speakers and field trips that provide additional activities for students throughout the school year.
