Welcome to the Department of History and Political Science. We invite you to take a closer look at our outstanding faculty, broad selection of courses and the many opportunities we offer for learning outside the traditional classroom setting.


Southeastern's graduate program in History prepares students for careers in history, law and other disciplines that require knowledge of how the past affects the present and future – including teaching, government service and business – or doctoral studies in history. Students in the program learn to read intelligently, think analytically, write clearly, assess past trends, predict future developments and understand the real world as they prepare for virtually any career.

  • Nearly all graduates of the program since 1990 have obtained jobs related to their course of study or admission into further graduate study

  • Faculty have won awards for excellence in teaching, research and service, produced a host of scholarly publications – many of which have attracted an international readership – and held important offices in professional organizations
