The Department provides a broad liberal arts education for all students. Our courses emphasize reading, writing, and critical thinking as well as discovering and using information. Students who are majors in History, Political Science, Social Sciences, or Interdisciplinary Studies should learn to analyze written material with accuracy and understanding, to write clearly and correctly about a subject in a major field, to perform scholarly research on a topic in a major field in a format specific to the field, and to gain an understanding of a major field as it connects to the world at large.
The Department office in Painter 111 is shared with the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Languages, Literature, and Philosophy. Classrooms and most offices for our faculty are also located in Painter Hall.
Our department prides itself on high quality instruction
true to MUW's educational mission.
